Military Aircraft

I saw this plane and than realized it was Military.
I do not know the name of this aircraft but have asked a friend and will update accordingly.
He must of been coming in for a landing at the Airport because he has the landing gear deployed.
UPDATE:(next day) I found out that this is a Lockheed CP-140 Aurora and it probably was not about to land.
It was built as a Sub Hunter and recon. Submarines are made of iron and iron disrupts the Ines of magnetism. What this plane does is look look for anomalous magnetic signatures where there shouldn’t be one!
It detects the subs with it’s tail section. Thats what that stinger like probe is on the rear of the plane. It’s called a ‘MAD” tail stinger. A Magnetic Anomalous Detector.
Thanks Andy and Ian for the info!
