Neptune Aviation: An Air-Tanker Giant That Keeps Reinventing Itself

Back in 1994, a year-old air-tanker company was established in Missoula, Montana. Neptune Aviation was one of 14 aviation services that operated a fleet of 44 aircraft nationwide as U.S. Forest Service (USFS) contractors. Their stable of 6 P-2V Neptune anti-submarine aircraft, which dated from the Korean War, ranged far and wide over the United States and were a familiar site over many major wildfires from 1994 till 2017. Late that year, they retired the last of their venerable LATs (Large Air-Tankers).
