Grumman (C)S-2A Tracker c/n DH-5-05 of the Royal Dutch Navy with registration 184 in an alley behind the Tradition Room (the naval air museum) at De Kooy naval air base in The Netherlands (EHKD) on 25 May 2012. The aircraft was built by De Havilland Canada and was taken over by the Dutch Navy from the Royal Canadian Air Force. It served at Hato air base at the Dutch Antilles island of Curacao in the Caribbean, hence the H on the tail (aircraft that were used on board the Dutch aircraft carrier Karel Doorman had a D on the tail, naval aircraft based at the former naval air base Valkenburg a V). I borrowed one of the maintenance stairs at the museum to get both the nose and the tail with the H in view. A large rusty bomb (defused I guess) prevented me from getting closer.
