The Royal Dutch Navy / MLD operated 26 Grumman S2N and 17 CS2A Tracker
anti-submarine aircraft from 1960 -1975. They were land based and
until 1968 also based at the carrier Hr.Ms.Karel Doorman.
On 5 September 2003, Grumman US2N Tracker 159'V' was photographed at the Aviodrome at Lelystad Airport in the Netherlands.
This Grumman US2N Tracker c/n 720 ex BuAer 148281 was original delivered to the Royal Dutch Navy / MLD as a Grumman S-2N.
In 1972, the "159" was converted into the US-2N model and used as target tower. After being withdrawn from use at Den Helder-De Kooy on
1 October 1975, the Grumman Tracker was transferred to the aviation museum Aviodome at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
In 2003, the Aviodome moved to Lelystad Airport and was renamed Aviodrome.
