Summary

Okinawa, Japan (Apr. 15, 2005) Aviation Ordnancemen assigned to the "Fighting Tigers" of Patrol Squadron Eight (VP-8) download Sonobuoys from a P-3C Orion. Sonobuoys are "active" and "passive" search stores carried on the P-3C Orion. Active buoys are mini-sonars, which "ping" for submarines and transmit the information up to the aircraft. Passive buoys are underwater microphones (hydrophones) that passively listen to all sounds in the water. U.S. Navy photo by Photographer's Mate 3rd Class Shannon R. Smith File# 050415-N-3122S-003
