U.S. Navy VS-24 can trace their beginning back to January 1943 as VB-17. Over time they were designated as VA-5B, VA-64, VC-24 and, on May 25, 1960, VS-24 “Scouts”. In mid-1976 VS-24 transitioned from the S-2 Tracker to the S-3A Viking. Since receiving the S-3A the squadron has operated from the carriers USS Nimitz, Carl Vinson, John F. Kennedy, Enterprise and Theodore Roosevelt. S-3As were converted to S-3Bs from 1987 - 1994 and S-3A 160138 MSN 394A-3120 was one. S-3B 160138 went to AMARC in 2005 and VS-24 was decommissioned in 2007.Opening canopy
