The P2V Neptune was a Maritime patrol and ASW aircraft. It was developed for the United States Navy by Lockheed to replace the Lockheed PV-1 Ventura and PV-2 Harpoon, and is now being replaced with the Lockheed P-3 Orion. The Neptune was sesigned as a land-based aircraft, it never made a carrier landing, although a small number of aircraft were converted and deployed as carrier launched stop-gap nuclear bombers. The Neptune was successful in export and saw service with several armed forces.
This specific Neptune is the P2V-7 variant, which was the last Neptune variant produced by Lockheed.
