Grumman TF-1 (C-1A) Trader






Last updated on: July 25, 2017

This page is just for the early COD carrier-capable plane, a variant of the Tracer and Tracker. And yes, not a jet, I know, I know.

This is a work in progress and any help would be appreciated. Information on these planes is rather difficult to locate online and this work will remain incomplete unless you the readers offer to help me. Please feel free to pass along any information that you might have.

At the end of this page is a list of people who have graciously offered their help. Thank you all very much!
