Nimrod R1 arrives at Cosford, and Cosford's GR9 and Friends

Postby PeterR on Sun 11 Mar 2012, 9:25 pm

Made the trip to Cosford today to see the arrival of XV249, and whilst there shot the Harrier for the first time and a few other bits. To my surprise the Mustang is back in the Warplanes hangar and the Spitfire PR19 that replaced it late last year has gone?!? Anyway here are some shots of the Nimrod R1 travelling to Cosford and some other from the day. C+C Welcome.

Fantastic Coverage, soon as she and the EAP are on display I am definetly making a visit, lots of been put on display since my last visit.
Any idea if the Spotty Jag will ever go on display?

Just answered my own question...

The EAP should be on display around Easter, if all goes well. The Nimrod, however, will take a while longer and is unlikely to be complete before early July. The Cosford pages of the RAF Museum site will announce when it is ready for viewing.

The museum won't be getting XX119 'Spotty' but does have a Jaguar in Raspberry Ripple on display in the test flight hangar.

Thanks for all the comments :biggrin:
