Remark Photographer
N12-153601 / 846 (cn 345C) A near-new RAN S-2E Tracker taxies out from the RAAF Fairbairn Apron at sunset in 1968. (This aircraft, acquired in 1967, predates S-2G N12-152800, also Code 846.) This S-2E was destroyed in the Nowra Hangar fire on 04Dec1976 - only one S-2E avoided immolation. (I photographed the burnt Hangar in 1977.) The old S-2E Codes were applied to the replacement S-2G aircraft. Trackers made a distinctive 'cracking' noise when the engines were at take-off power - caused by the propeller tips going Super-Sonic!
