Better than the goose entrails stripes it went in with!! The dents apparently took a while to hammer out!

With all of the Seedcorn instructor crews already operational on US P-8 there must now be a fairly decent sized MPA crew set up in place already. 2 new crews qualified, with 2-3 already operational under Seedcorn with another 2 more in the pipeline. P-8 will probably be the smoothest introduction to service ever.

Great cockpit shots, particularly the low level one.
