Here is a good press release on a much needed effort: refurbishing P-3s.
It would be good if the U.S. Navy would press head and look at the P-8 not as a replacement of the P-3, but to better enhance U.S. Navy ISR. Value-added for the coming thin budget years.
The same could be said for Australian Defence.
New Zealand was pretty smart with P-3 life extension. (H/T-Horde) Project Kestrel involved Hawker Pacific (Aust) and refurbished 6 x NZ P-3K airframes and, in the process, zero houred the principal airframe components (wing, including carry through; empennage; and, engine nacelles) for something like NZ$91M for everything.
