Grumman S2F-1 Tracker: The cute adjetive is mandatory here.

A lovely S2F undertaking the role for which it was originally conceived: anti-submarine warfare (ASW). This ubiquitous design design later evolved into other models intended for other roles, in both the military and civilian spheres.

Italy acquired forty-five new and second-hand S2F-1s for their Aeronautica Militare. By the way, the artistic sense of the author of this recruiting poster dictated the deletion of the awkward looking AN/APA-69A ECM pod which was situated above the cockpit.

  1. 100 Grumman Trackers were built by de Havilland Canada and they landed here frequently in the 1970s. I always felt sorry for the flight crews who had to wear uncomfortable dry suits with neck and wrist seals.
