A very rare “family photo” … the Stockton Field Aviation Museums PV-2 “Harpoon”, surrounded by the P2-V “Neptune”, the (newest) P-8 “Poseidon”, and the P-3 “Orion”.

This gathering of Patrol planes was to honor VP-50 Crew 2/11, who all died in a tragic mid-air collision on March 21, 1991 (link). The Memorial service was held at Moffett Field in Sunnyvale, CA.
