Better to go with UAVs anyway. Manned patrol planes are obsolete.

I just don’t know about the switch from the P-3 to the P-7 (737). Two engines versus four, less endurance, no great increase in relevant performance.

A further updated P-3 with the latest avionics would seem to me to have been the better choice. I think politics played a role.

The squadron will be disestablished on Friday.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

But that would run counter to those who believe in antidisestablishmentarianism.

(I wanted to be able to say I used that in a sentence once. It even passed the spellcheck.)
