P2 Neptune Deployments to NAS Keflavik, Iceland

HistoryA BIT OF HISTORY: "...Neptune Deployments to NAS Keflavik, Iceland..." WebSite: The Lockheed P2V Neptune http://www.verslo.is/baldur/p2/kef_p2s.htm [21MAR2001]

The information here has been updated from my old list with additional information from the DICTIONARY OF AMERICAN NAVAL AVIATION SQUADRONS—Volume 2.  Available from the Naval Historical Center at this address: http://www.history.navy.mil/branches/dictvol2.htm. It is believed to be fairly complete as to actual deployments, but may be lacking in details as to short time detachments and exercises. All comments welcome. Send any comments to: Baldur@verslo.is
