NAS Jax shows off new aircraft
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- NAS Jax showed off the new P-8A Poseidon aircraft on Wednesday.
To save money, the Navy has decided to reduce the number of home-bases for the planes from 3 to 2, which includes NAS Jax.
On Thursday, the Navy will hold a public meeting about the home-basing impact of the aircraft. The military plans to share the large plane's environmental impact and give neighbors an opportunity to provide feedback.
The meeting will take place on Thursday, Nov. 7 from 5-8 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites in Orange Park.
