Seen in the process of dismantling before conversion to MRA4 ZJ520 (PA-7). Programme was cancelled and all were scrapped. In the background are 3 others, XV251, XV258 and XZ284 waiting for conversion to ZJ514 (PA-4), ZJ515 (PA-5) and ZJ519 (PA-6). Also in the background is RJX85 E2395 being dismantled when that programme was also cancelled.

Coming over the hedge for static display at the 2005 Waddington Airshow this was the first Nimrod to enter service with the RAF in 1969. Tragically it exploded in mid air over Afghanistan on 2nd September 2006 killing all 14 persons on board. This crash led to an extensive enquiry which resulted in the premature retirement of the entire RAF Nimrod fleet and deprived the UK of a genuine maritime reconnaissance aircraft for over a decade.

This was the first Nimrod to enter service with the RAF in 1969. Tragically it exploded in mid air over Afghanistan on 2nd September 2006 killing all 14 persons on board. This crash led to an extensive enquiry which resulted in the premature retirement of the entire RAF Nimrod fleet and deprived the UK of a genuine maritime reconnaissance aircraft for over a decade.

Looking rather tired and worn, XV229 sits on the ramp at RAF Kinloss awaiting its fate. Nimrod MR2 operations ended on March 31, 2010, hailing the end of a era of British military aviation history.

Nimrod MR2 XV242 was converted to a BAE Systems Nimrod MRA4 and given the new serial ZJ517. As such it was eventually scrapped, after the MRA4 project was cancelled.
