P2V-7LP NEPTUNE-LUGGAGE TAG

MotoArt is honored to add another historic aircraft to the Walter Soplata Collection - a Lockheed P2 Neptune that braved the extreme Antarctic conditions in support of Operation Deep Freeze. 

The Lockheed P2 Neptune was a long-range, maritime patrol and anti-submarine aircraft developed for the US Navy. It first flew in 1945, and after that the sky was the limit. They were produced nonstop between 1946 to 1961 and went on to boast one of the longest unbroken production runs of a military aircraft ever.

140436, constructed as a P2V-7LP, was one of four built that were specifically designed with wheel/ski landing gear and JATO gear for Antarctic operations. Built in 1956, ‘436 would spend its entire career with the VX-6 in support of “Operation Deep Freeze” out of McMurdo Station, Antarctica. ‘436, nicknamed ‘Candid Camera’, was tasked with moving cargo, personnel, fuel, SAR and medevac missions throughout Antarctica. It was struck off charge in 1965 and returned to the states.
