The last turbo tracker in the world to fly with the Argentine Naval Aviation (news photo)

A Grumman S-2T Turbo Tracker, upgraded to 2-AS-24, was, to our information, the unit’s only operational turbo tracker and the last – of the models of this class operational on the planet Aircraft Carrier Landing Ground (PTAP ), carried out by crews of the anti-submarine squadron at Comandante Espora Air Naval Base, the main fortress of the Argentine naval aviation. They were carried out on the auxiliary runway of this base with the support of a mobile control tower and an approach lighting system identical to those of aircraft carriers. (Luis Pieiro)
