Aero-News Quote of the Day
"We are clearly sorry to see the Nimrod MR2 retire but
today is an opportunity to reflect on the marvelous contribution to
national security made by the Maritime Patrol Force. The Nimrod has
been involved in every major conflict in the last 40 years as well
as protecting the UK's shores and supporting those working at sea
through its Search and Rescue role. Much of our work has
necessarily been shrouded in secrecy, but it is with great pride,
affection and confidence that we say farewell to this version of
'The Mighty Hunter'."
