Have close to 500 in the Navy EC-121M I caught the end of their life in 73, I was transferred to EA-3Bs after that.

My how things change. The first one flew in 1951 48 years after the Wright Brothers.
I think this one rolled off the line in 1956- 53 years after the Wrights.
That was 58 years ago. What will another half century look like?
How will our standards of A/C beauty change?

Beautiful a/c. Thanks to Breitling for sponsoring the 700,000€ annual maintenance bill. Whew!
