==Operational history==
In 1952 the [[US Navy]] typed this aircraft the '''XS2F-1''' and flew it for the first time on December 4th of that year. During the rest of the [[1950s|1950's]] 3 major variants emerged, the C-1 Trader being one of them. The C-1 (originally the '''TF-1''') was outfitted to carry nine passengers or 3500 pounds of cargo and first flew in January 1955. Through out the [[1960s|1960's]] and [[1970s|1970's]] the C-1 Trader carried mail and supplies to [[Aircraft Carriers|aircraft carriers]] on station in the Pacific Ocean during the [[Vietnam war|Vietnam War]] and also served as a trainer for all weather carrier operations. Over its production life 83 C-1 ''Traders'' were built plus four EC-1A ''Tracers'' which were converted into electronic [[countermeasure]] aircraft. The last C-1 was retired from US Navy service in 1988 though approximately ten are still operated as vintage war birds.
