A tired old tanker.......if it weren't for forest fires, Neptune would be not be in business. If it were not for the military, companies like Neptune would not be in business because they would not have airplanes to fly.
I flew for Neptune for 5 years, seasonal pilot. Those P2's are maintenance hogs. On average they have 30,000+ plus hours, and the R 3350's are hard to find parts for.

Nice photo!
