Tridents fly Battle of Midway CoNA Orion to Florida

As part of the 2011 Centennial of Naval Aviation (CoNA) celebration, the “Tridents” of Patrol Squadron (VP) 26 recently flew a uniquely painted P-3C Orion from Atsugi, Japan to NAS Jacksonville. The Orion, P-3C Bu No. 161591 is painted in the markings of PBY-5A Catalina 44-P-4 of VP-44, which was the first American aircraft to spot the Japanese invasion fleet off Midway on 3rd June 1942.
