The P-3 Orion is a four-engine turboprop anti-submarine and maritime surveillance aircraft developed by Lockheed for the United States Navy. The design was based on the L-188 Electra commercial airliner and was first introduced in the 1960s. The P-3 Orion is still in use by numerous navies and air forces around the world, primarily for maritime patrol, reconnaissance, anti-surface warfare and anti-submarine warfare. A total of 734 P-3s have been built, and has recently joined the handful of military aircraft, such as the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, which have served 50 years of continuous use with its original primary customer, in this case, the United States Navy.
