Photo Comment

Here, this VS-71 Tracker has remained mercifully free of the dreaded Spraylat. She was one of those with a new career ahead. Having arrived at DM in 12.74, she went on to the Venezuelan Navy in 5.81 as AS-108, the last of eight supplied (6 in 1975, 2 in 1981). They were replaced by ASW version of the C.212 and put into store at naval air base Puerto Cabello.
