The "S2T" air drops above, were done at Mather Field, California on
the afternoon of March 17, 1999. This S2E turbine conversion is being
completed by Marsh Aviation of Mesa, Arizona.

Grumman originally designed the S2E for use by the U.S.Navy,
this new use effectively "recycles" Federal tax dollars!

The aircraft is equipped with Allied Signal (Garrett) TPE 331-14GR engines
and a 1200 gal.(U.S.) constant flow, computerized delivery system.
