UPDATE "...As a matter of possible interest, several comments have reached me about the bottom-most P4M-1Q photo in the P4M aircraft panel. The photo was taken from the hangar and shows a bird being refueled with the Oudi Sebou (river) in the background. People have asked how the Papa Sierra tail letters could have been on a VQ-2 bird . "Everyone" knows VQ-2's letters were - and are - JQ. When the two VQ squadrons were commissioned in 1955, VQ-1 became Papa Romeo (Peter Roger in those days) and VQ-2 logically became Papa Sierra. In late 1956, however, the Navy decreed that Lant Fleet assets were to be coded A through M and Pac assets from N through Z. VQ-1 got to keep PR as a tail code and VQ-2 changed at that time to JQ. By the way, I believe the aircraft is Bureau Number 122209 which became JQ-4 in 1957 and later, after overhaul, went to VQ-1 where it was badly damaged by North Korean fighters off Wonsan on June 16, 1959 and subsequently scrapped..."
