The Lockheed P-3C Orion had just completed depot level maintenance at NAS Jacksonville, FL (KNIP) and the flight crew from the aircraft’s home squadron at NAS Moffett Field, CA was conducting a local post-depot maintenance acceptance flight.
The main runway at KNIP was undergoing reconstruction with a displaced threshold due to construction down to pavement sub-base (aprx depth 3 ft) in first 1000 feet of the runway.

The aircraft landed short in the runway construction zone, tearing off one main landing gear mount. The aircraft initiated a climb, retracted remaining landing gear, and executed an emergency gear up landing at nearby then-NAS Cecil Field (KNZC), which became the joint civil-military Cecil Airport (KVQQ) in Oct 1999.
