VP AircraftAIRCRAFT: P2 ThumbnailCameraVP-60 P2 BUNO: 147952 "...(LS-6)...147952 (cn 7202) The 'LS-06' code suggests that this SP-2H Neptune was operated by VP-60, a U.S. Navy Reserve unit based at NAS Glenview, Illinois. She entered AMARC in January 1974 and was photographed in excellent condition 15 years later. She is still believed to be in store in AMARC today (Dec 04) which would make her one of the longest stored aircraft there - Tucson - Davis-Monthan AFB (DMA / KDMA) - USA - Arizona, November 4, 1989..."

VP AircraftAIRCRAFT: P2 ThumbnailCameraVP-60 P2 BUNO: 148359 "...(LS-4)...I took these photos in the Summer of 1971 (maybe 1972), and the event took place at NAS Glenview, Illinois. In the photos one of our VP-60 Neptunes (LS-04, BUNO: 148359) sits facing west on the east-west runway, with a VP-30 Orion (LL-17, BUNO: 152722) directly behind it. Looking south into the background you see the NAS golf course. What you're looking at is a "static start" of one of the Orion's engines by the Neptune. VP-30 was visiting that day, and getting ready to depart they discovered they had no starter in one of their engines. Neptune to the rescue! It's a great photo of these two generations of ASW aircraft "side-by-side."..." Contributed by LaGRO, AW2 Phil pal7445@msn.com [07APR2009]
