In 1974 the Lockheed S-3 Viking entered service with the USN as a twin-engine jet aircraft used
for enemy submarine warfare. By the late 1990’s the role shifted to surface warfare providing the
carrier battle group with long range surveillance capabilities and aerial refueling. The S-3 was in
production from 1974 until 1978 with 186 (187) aircraft completed. Most airframes saw upgrades
low pitch sound of the engines earned the S-3 the nickname “Hoover” after the vacuum cleaner.


VS-24 can trace their beginning back to January 1, 1943 as VB-17. Over time they were VA-5B,
VA-64, VC-24 and finally VS-24 “Scouts” on May 25, 1960. In mid-1976 VS-24 transitioned from
the S-2 Tracker to the modern S-3A Viking. Since receiving the S-3A VS-24 has operated off the
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.
