Grumman C-1A Trader

@ Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport, Santa Rosa, CA

September 2016

The Wings Over Wine Country airshow is a surprisingly good airshow considering the locale and that no jet teams are present.  This C-1 makes for a unique warbird as it made a pass down the flightline.  The Grumman C-1 Trader is a carrier onboard delivery (COD) variant of the Grumman S-2 Tracker.  First flown in 1958, it served until retirement in 1988 when it was replaced by the Grumman C-2 Greyhound.  Only 83 of the type were built.  Nikon D500 w/80-400 mm, processed with Aperture.
