Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Home of Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 10 and the center of the Navy’s Electronic Warfare aircraft.  I’m working on a brief about ASW and Patrol Aviation in the current world and ahead followed by tour opportunities on a P-8A and of course a P-3.  This tour should only last through lunch and there will be plenty of free time in the afternoon for independent exploring before the business meeting in the early evening.
