Notes:

Interesting history on this one. It was built in January 1963 (USAF# 61-2990) and immediately transferred to the Italian Air Force (serial# EI-26) where it remained until 1992, when it was sold to the Republic of Malta for $1.00. It was one of 5 that Malta used for coastal patrol until May 2000, when it was sold and brought to the U.S. - nicknamed "The Maltese Falcon". In total it has logged only 4,000 flight hours and has the original 1963 paint.
