Comment "P-3 strip" on Governor's Harbour Airport, Bahamas

Picture of

P-3 strip

As VP-45 P-3 Aircrew I flew in several times. Last visit in a P-3 was interesting; #4 start valve would not open (even with a couple of whacks with a hammer) so the PPC did a runway high-speed run to spin-up start #4. As #4 started, he went to full beta thrust to stop before running out of pavement. Then taxi back with all four turning to pick up the rest of the crew for a ride back to Jax. Snorkeling there was great; it was just across the runway, and the fire department would give us a rinse off before getting back in pickle suits. Oh the days.
