US Navy's Poseidon completes debut deployment

The inaugural deployment of the P-8A Poseidon is now in the books.
Patrol Squadron 16 returned to NAStation Jacksonville, Florida, after a seven-month deployment to Kadena Air Base on Okinawa, Japan. The squadron’s last P-8A touched down at NAS Jacksonville on July 16, signaling the beginning of the end for the venerable P-3C Orion, which will phased out over the rest of the decade.
