Clearly withdrawn from use, but I have been unable to find any details of the reason - a hard landing, maybe? It was scrapped by Henry Orchard, St Austell in May 1992.

Seen at a Families Day, parked at dispersal on its home base, RAF Kinloss. Entered service in 1969 as the first of the RAF's operational Nimrod fleet. Suffered a tragic fatal accident after in-flight refuelling on a reconnaissance mission over Afghanistan in 2006, when a fire led to a catastrophic explosion resulting in the loss of all 14 persons on board. The subsequent Inquiry, Inquest and Nimrod Review were severely critical of the Authorities regarding Nimrod safety and airworthiness. In 2009 the MR2 fleet was grounded. Coupled with the axing of the failing MR4 project in 2010, this left the UK with no credible long range maritime reconnaissance / anti submarine capability until the arrival of the Poseidon MRA1 in 2020.

XV235 was built as an MR.1 and later converted to an MR.2. It was retired at RAF Kinloss in March 2010 and scrapped on site some months later. The forward fuselage was transported to the Avro Museum at the former Avro/BAE plant at Woodford, where she is now on display representing the integral part that Woodford played in Nimrod production and upgrades.

This was one of three R1s. It was on a post maintenance testflight from Kinloss when things went wrong on 16 May'95. After 35 min of flight, following an anti-icing system test, No4 and No3 engine fire warnings illuminated. Whilst the crew were carrying out the fire drill, a rear crew member confirmed that the R1 was on fire and reported that panels were falling away from the starboard wing. After 2 explosions, the captain feared for the structural integrity and decided to ditch in the North Sea before he lost control authority. The R1 bounced twice, broke apart and sank, seven crew survived.
