Actual photograph of a P-3 from the mid 1960s duplicating the scene from the artwork in the previous image. The attitude and altitude of this P-3A almost is nearly identical to the Orion in the artwork. Interesting that with the Orion operational when this shot was taken, the other aircraft in the artwork, the P2V Neptune, is no longer shown.
