Just over 44 years since it was officially retired from service duty, a restored Grumman Tracker is ready to be centre stage at a reunion at HARS Aviation Museum next month.
The S-2 Tracker is the first former Royal Australian Navy aircraft to fly after restoration for HARS Navy Heritage Flight.
Tracker 844 flew from Nowra’s Albatross Aviation Technology Park to Shellharbour Airport last weekend.
Following an open tender process and some 15 years of negotiation, in January this year HARS Navy Heritage Flight became the custodian of former Navy Historic Flight aircraft.
The two-day “Friends of the Tracker Reunion” to be held at HARS Aviation Museum on 23-24 October.
