Totally off topic, but they'll deal.
You had an Orion? It's a bit different these days isn't it. I'm sure I could look it up, but whats the MTOW like? I can imagine it must have been a major feat trying to manually keep quads in sinc. I would love to try and fly one, but quite honestly.. I lack the skills!
Now it's all about fast, faster and dumbed down to the point a guy could practically take a nap.
As far as I know P-3c's are still in pretty heavy service. Not too many months ago I had the occasion to make a flight up North in my personal craft and saw a few sitting out on the tarmac in Vancouver.
If you're ever in the neighborhood, let's swap some stories.
