I'll chip in with this, which was taken over the fence a couple of days before the (fairly literal from what I remember of the dismantling methods) axe fell. Having grown up in the 80's and gone to school literally under the approach path to Woodford I had huge fondness for these planes (especially fond memories of the AEW) .

ZJ516 and 518 I think they were.

For us, spotters, Nimrods were welcome guests at Valkenburg (Holland). The locals weren't that enthusiastic because of the noise. :tongue2:

The last Nimrod at Valkenburg, arriving for the last open day before base closure.

And one at Fairford.

A different view of XV232, on 27th October 2008. Myself and Tom were two of four lucky cadets on a PAX flight from RAF Kinloss, and the best part was that on the "Vomit Comet" the 2 cadets from Sunderland were ill, and myself and Tom were not! Bring on fast jets!

Crap quality as this was before I got a DSLR, what I would give to have this flight again with a DSLR, but we all know that is never going to happen.

This was taken I think at Farnborough 1980. A slightly more unusual Nimrod.

Scanned picture so unfortunately not the best quality shot.
