  •  Navy P-3 Orion? (2+ / 0-)

    They're pretty distinctive, with a bulbous pod for a tail. Common in CA in the bay area when I was a child; based out of Moffet field (closed now, I think), IIRC.

    Subhunters, so likely there were some down in southern CA as well. They often run on two engines, and they can loiter a long time.

    Google images has lots of pictures if you use 'p-3 orion'.
