The Squqdron That Never Was Charlie Joseph CharlieJ cajoseph@us.hsanet.net If you want to learn more about these P-2's. Go to my site:

Select the Navy career page, then the Brunswick, Me. page, then the P2V page. Go to the bottom and visit some of the links for that aircraft. I was not in that squadron, but it was not quite as secret as you think. Aircrew with experience in P2's knew of the formation of special ops squadrons for Vietnam. There were a few other squadrons (special VA's and VB's) flying specially modified P2s for various missions. Many of us requested that duty. I did while I was in advanced electronics school (1966-67), but alas, they sent me to a Vigilante squadron. However, I have many flight hours in the ASW version of the P2 and it's replacement the P3.
