Tracker aircraft were purchased by the Royal Canadian Navy to be used on aircraft carriers. However, when the carrier was phased out in 1969, the Tracker’s role changed from anti-submarine to coastal patrol. The museum’s example was one of the first Trackers built by DeHavilland and has served with every squadron in the Canadian navy.
