The first P-8A Poseidon aircraft for Norway has rolled out of the paint shop in Renton, in Royal Norwegian Air Force livery.

Norway is one of eight nations to have acquired the P-8A as their new multi-mission maritime patrol aircraft.

Norway's first P-8A aircraft will now return to the factory floor to be prepared for flight testing. First flight is scheduled for later this month, and mission systems will be installed on the aircraft after that.
