P-8A Poseidon makes first flight

The US' next generation maritime patrol and ASW platform, the P-8A Poseidon has made it's first flight. It is based on the Boeing 737 of course. Perhaps with hindsight the UK should have bought this instead of keeping the Nimrod going though it won't be ready for the USN until 2013 and other customers later.
