This aircraft was once assigned to thr Commandant of the Marine Corp, and the the CINCUSNAVEUR crew in Sigonella. She is easily distinguished from the other VP-3's by the extra set of observer windows in th rear of the a/c. Rumor has it that those windows were an unapproved mod by the Marines. I was flight engineer on this aircraft from 86-90, and also flew on 150511 while this a/c was in Alameda for a satcom mod. Great aircraft with alot of memories foe me!

I was the "Plane Captain" on this aircraft while we both served with VP-28 in 1966-67. The squadron tail number was QC-3 and we flew out of Barbers Point Hawaii;Sangley Point, P.I. and Adak, Alaska. Our radio call was "Wildroot three" and squadron nickname was "Hawaiian Warriors". I remember the aircraft as very maintenance free (not a hanger queen).

I flew on crew three with VP-28 in BUNO 150515. It was numbered QC 3 at that time. I was the plane captain on this aircraft from the end of 1966 to the middle of 1967. We flew out of Barbers Point, Hawaii and Adak Alaska. The crews nickname, (after the pilots last name) was" Schultzs Animals". I you need/want, I can provide more info. I am curious about the condition of the aircraft at this time. Is it whole, a parted out shell, or what ?
