Comments: My dad, Edward (Ned) P. Coleman, has recently died of pancreatic cancer. He served with VC-5, VC-6, and VP-24. My sisters and I are trying to find out when, where, and what his duties entailed. If anyone has any information which would help us, we would appreciate hearing from you. Thank you.

Comments: I am looking for the history of a P2V-2 Neptune that had the tail conde of HA.

It was one of the following BUNO's - 122465 or 122466.

I think it was 122465.

This P2V-2 was sent to VX-6 and was modified to P2V-2N specs (skis, bomb-bay internal fuel tank, stripped of the MAD and electronic gear). It crashed while attempting a white-out condition landing at McMurdo Station on Oct 18 1956. 4 Shipmates lost their lives.

I have a webpage that is dedicated to the aircraft of VX-6. I have a picture of one of these two P2V-2's in Antarctica with the HA tailcode still on the tail.

I would like to know - VP-24 did not go to Antarctica did they? Did VP-24 bail a P2V-2 to VX-6 for Operation Deep Freeze?

Any answers, photos, sea stories would be great!

Joe
