This Nimrod has the unique distinction of having existed in all three versions of the aircraft. Built as a MR1 in 1970 it was withdrawn from service at the end of 1983 and converted to MR2 standard, returning to operations in 1985. In 1992 it was placed in storage at Kinloss along with two other MR2's and this could well have been the end of its flying career. However on 16th May 1995 one of 51 Sqn's three R1 (XW666) ditched in the Moray firth and was written off (without injury to the crew). As a result XV249 was brought out of storage and converted to R1 standard as a replacement.

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.

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.
