This aerial view shows Grumman Tracker anti-submarine aircraft aboard HMCS Bonaventure, Canada's third and last post-war aircraft carrier.
Trackers with their wings folded for storage (left) cluster on the flight deck, while another lands or prepares for take-off (upper right). Like HMCS Warrior and HMCS Magnificent, Bonaventure was a British-built aircraft carrier. Extensively modified to meet Canadian requirements and specifications, Bonaventure entered Canadian service in 1957, operating a range of aircraft including the Tracker, the McDonnell Banshee, and anti-submarine helicopters before being decommissioned in 1970.
