Photo Comment

XV234 wears an Australian Bicentennial logo behind the cockpit with the legend "Fincastle 88". This is a reference to the Fincastle Trophy ASW contest staged in Australia that year. XV234 became one of the Nimrods converted to a MRA4 (as serial ZJ518) before that project was cancelled and the aircraft scrapped.
