I saw this beauty in August at Thunder Over Michigan and thought of Old NFO.
an article about Aero Union's sale of their fleet of P-3s, and this article mentions Tanker 22 here specifically.
Buffalo Airways of Canada reportedly bought it and plans to keep it in service as a firefighting tanker, adding it to their eclectic and historic fleet of passenger and cargo transports that includes Electras (the "civilian" P-3), DC-3 and DC-4 aircraft, and even old Curtis C-46s. I think I'll send them a resume, just for the hell of it. If I can fly a Cessna 172, I can learn to fly one or more of these, I'm thinking.
