A very nice Grumman Tracker, taken on charge by the Royal Netherlands Navy on 18 Aug 1960 as an S-2A. Converted to S-2N, then US-2N and withdrawn from use on 1 Oct 1975. Officially struck off charge on 7 Jul 1976 and transferred to the Militaire Luchtvaart Museum.
One of four Trackers converted for the Kon Marine as Utility/trainers in 1971. I caught this doing circuits on a fine morning at Valkenburg with most of the other then current types in service. Scrapped 7 Jan1976 apparently.
This former Royal Dutch Navy Tracker is pictured on display at the Aviodom's former location at Schiphol airport. It was moved to the new location at Lelystad Airport when this location closed in 2003.
This S-2 originally designated the BuNo.147641 but was delivered to the Royal Netherlands Navy in 1960 as 151. It was on outside display at the Aviodrome at Lelystad Airport in this fake KLM Technical training Department colour scheme but the weather seems to have taken its toll and it is now in the restoration hangar, along with DC-2 PH-AJU, awaiting refurbishment.
