HistoryA BIT OF HISTORY: "00XXX40---Besides the composite squadrons (VC), several patrol squadrons (VP)had specific mission requirements that were different from its normal patrol and reconnaissance duties. However, these squadrons still maintained the normal VP designation. In the late 1940s there were two VP squadrons with a primary mission of photographic and one with an air early warning mission. VP-61 and VP-62 were the photographic squadrons and VP-51 was the air early warning squadron...." Contributed by John E. McKillop jmckillo@NOTES.CC.BELLCORE.COM
