Lockheed S-3 Viking

Lockheed S-3 Viking

Anti-Submarine, Anti-Ship and Reconnaissance aircraft. Retired from full-time duty, the Viking remains a very popular airframe which enjoys the nickname "Hoover" due to the unique sound made by its twin turbofan engines.

This example is from Air Test and Evaluation Squadron Thirty (VX-30 ) "Bloodhounds" based at Naval Base Ventura County in Point Mugu, California.
