As seen here, difficult to believe that the Neptunes
might have a crew of twelve. Visibility in the cockpit
was fairly good with large glazed and bulged lateral
surfaces. Inside, things were quite different but crew
had before all to closely concentrate on their scopes and
other maritime warfare devices and, except the front and
rear observers, they had no interest for sea landscapes,
tracking a foe submarine being a play of superior nature...
Propulsion means are not giving the feeling that half
wing spans more than 50 ft. The tiptank surely had a
respectable capacity and it's quite a number of fairings
housing ECM and buoys detectors and sensors all along the
aircraft in all fuselage positions, without to speak
about the long MAD housing at rear for magnetic detection
of immersed subs.
