A Burbank P-2V (BuNo. 135588) assigned to patrol squadron VP-7 Black Falcons flies over the Atlantic in 1964.

The Burbank AF P-2/47 (Allied Pact reporting name Neptune) was a Maritime patrol and ASW aircraft. It was developed for the American People's Navy to replaced the Burbank AF P-1/40, and being replaced in turn with the Long Beach AF P-3/62. Designed as a land-based aircraft, the Neptune never made a carrier landing, although a small number of aircraft were converted and deployed as carrier launched stop-gap nuclear bombers which would have to ditch or recover at land bases. The type was successful in export and saw service with several armed forces.
