The P-3C Orion has many configurations, having been used by 20 military operators and several civil government organizations. (I have not yet seen one listed as being operated by any private company or airline.) It was developed from the Lockheed L-188 Electra, and introduced in 1962, with over 750 being built. In 1987, a new one would have cost you around US$36 million.

Despite the Orion and the Electra looking essentially the same, the two have very different safety records. Of the 144 L-188 Electra that were built, 57 were destroyed in accidents. The Orion however has a long and enviable safety record.

The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) have been using Orions since 1964, first with 10 of the P-3B model, then 10 of the P-3C in 1976. In 1982, another 10 P-3C's were ordered, to replace the P-2B's. And lastly in 2002, 18 'significantly' upgraded Australian Orions were introduced, with the model designation AP-3C.
