Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Lexington Park, Maryland. Blue Eagles started out assigned to Oceanographic Airborne Survey Unit (OASU, 1 July 1965), then renamed Air Development Squadron Eight (VX-8, 1 July 1967), then renamed Oceanographic Development Squadron Eight (VXN-8, 1 January 1969) to support West Pac Detachment Project Jenny.

If you look at some of the links below you will see that our air craft supported many different projects. In the 60's and 70's a lot of the work was classified as Black Ops. This is what the United States placed many projects and money under to accomplish things without publicity as to what the cost of and the classified mission was. Some of the work in Jenny was this.
Many days you would see aircraft with no marking in one of our assigned slots, stay overnight and leave early. I remember this all black P2V with jet pods and no visible lights with guns mounted on her. Along with a few other gun ships. It stayed overnight. Air America's C-47's stayed overnight, was glad to provide assist and help with things when they needed items.
