Military Aircraft, 3 US Navy P8A Jets Flew Over.

[Addendum: At the time of posting, I failed to speculate on the connection of these aircraft to the missing Malaysian Flight MH370. With that said, why would 3 US Navy Maritime Reconnaissance jets fly out over my house in Southern Indiana 2 days before the original departure of ‘MH370’?]

I captured these 3 different military aircraft flying over today and will take this opportunity to educate a few folk on types of aircraft.

These aircraft were US Navy P8 Poseidon’s which is a modified Boeing 737.

Wikipedia gives this information on the P8.

The Boeing P-8 Poseidon (formerly the Multimission Maritime Aircraft or MMA) is a military aircraft currently being developed for the United States Navy (USN). The aircraft is being developed by Boeing Defense, Space & Security, modified from the 737-800ERX.

The P-8 is intended to conduct anti-submarine warfare (ASW), anti-surface warfare (ASUW), and shipping interdiction, along with an electronic intelligence (ELINT) role. This will involve carrying torpedoes, depth charges, SLAM-ER missiles, Harpoon anti-ship missiles, and other weapons.
