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.

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 After being withdrawn from use at Den Helder-De Kooy on 1 October 1975, the Grumman Tracker was transferred to the aviation museum Aviodome at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.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.
