A Grumman, now retired from two careers , rests in the field next to the airport at Weed California. Last light of the day illuminates 14,000′  Mt. Shasta in the distance. Western tour rolls on.

  1. The Grumman S-2 airplanes that are still in use in firefighting have often been converted to turboprops. This one may be sitting there waiting to be cannibalized or converted to turboprops.

    Grumman made ’em strong.

  2. That is the first plane my dad started flying for the navy. Then he moved to another Grumman. A new fangled jet called the A-6 Intruder. He flew with the first squadron commissioned and the last squadron decommissioned! . Thanks for the picture.
