Nimrod XV232

Beautiful Aircraft!
The Hawker Siddeley Nimrod was a maritime patrol aircraft predominately (there were variants) that flew from 1970ish until 2010, only 49 were ever made and 2 prototypes; it was intended that there was to be a MRA4 to replace existing aircraft but it was never finished and abandoned in 2010 as its was very costly and nine years late! 

They have an event on the 7th April, It is well worth a visit details here
