Grumman E-1B (WF-2) ‘Tracer’

June 29, 2013

Another shot from the New England Air Museum, this time from their static, outdoor displays. Since a devastating tornado in 1979 destroyed most of their original aircraft, the museum has been working hard on getting as many planes as possible indoors. The planes remaining outside are ones that haven’t gone in for restoration yet.  This funky looking plane is the Grumman E-1B (WF-2) ‘Tracer’, one of only 88 planes produced.

[See here for a shot of what the old museum looked like after the tornado.]

This shot was processed using the more intense settings in Topaz Adjust, as I like the HDR-ish processed look on the old plane.

  1. Never seen that plane. It must look like a flying saucer in flight.

  2. I guess that’s a radar on top, an olden days awacs. It’s smashing to see a photo of a great old plane. Thanks for sharing.

    Very neat shot. I like the processing you did on this one. The part on top resembles a mushroom.

    • Thanks Julie! The dome is a big radar unit, and definitely makes for a unique look.
