The Unites States Navy's P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft took flight over the Farnborough audience. This was the P-8A's first appearance at the Farnborough airshow. The P-8 is a derivative of the 737 Next Generation commercial airplane and replaces the Navy's P-3 Orion. It has long-range patrol roles including detection, tracking, and engagement of surface and submarine combatants, as well intelligence, surveillance, traffic monitoring, reconnaissance and search and rescue.
