HistoryA BIT OF HISTORY: "...Circa 1970...VP-47, as it is known today, came into existence with the commissioning of VPB-27 at NAAS Harvey Point, North Carolina, on the first of June, 1944. Although commissioned in the Atlantic Fleet, all operations of the Squadron have been as part of the Pacific Fleet, with over ten years being spent outside the continental limits of the United States. The Korean conflict held the Squadron in Japan for an extra seven months, after which they moved to their new home as NAS Alameda, California.

In March of 1965, after making several deployments to Alaska, the Squadron moved to NAS Moffett Field, California to transition to the P-3A Orion patrol aircraft. They became the first Pacific Squadron to fly the P-3C operationally..." Contributed by Jan Hartman [23MAY2000]
