David D Jackson has built an extensive set of web pages focused on Grumman S-2 Tracker aircraft. He includes fuselage numbers, locations, and short histories of surviving Grumman S-2 Trackers, Traders, and Tracers. Here's a Youtube video of DeHavilland S-2 Trackers and other aircraft taking off and landing from the carrier HMAS Melborne. This Youtube S-2 Tracker video shows DeHavilland Trackers taxxiing and taking off at NAS Norwa in 1984.
