Boeing P-8 Poseidon Coming to AirVenture, Offering Tours
July 13, 2017 - The Boeing P-8 Poseidon, first delivered to the United States Navy five years ago, will be represented at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017. The P-8 will arrive to Boeing Plaza on Monday and depart on Thursday, when a different P-8 will arrive to sit on the Plaza for the rest of the week.
In addition to getting to see this Navy version of the Boeing 737, AirVenture attendees will also have an opportunity to tour it. Tours will be offered on Tuesday and Wednesday to interested visitors.
The P-8 has been used around the globe since it entered service, and roughly 50 of the multi-mission maritime aircraft have been delivered to the Navy thus far. The P-8 is intended to replace the Lockheed P-3 Orion completely by 2019.
