May 24: The latest delivery of a Nimrod MR2 to a museum saw XV255 fly into Norwich Airport to be retired to the City of Norwich Aviation Museum.

XV255 had been earmarked for the RAF Museum at Cosford but clearance to fly into the West Midlands airfield was not forthcoming and the cost of dismantling the aircraft at nearby Shawbury was deemed prohibitive. Cosford is now likely to get another Nimrod dismantled at RAF Kinloss and taken by road.

The last Nimrod MR2 flight is expected to be on Wednesday with the delivery of XV229 to Manston in Kent.

This is quite a coup for Horsham St Faith (as was) - nice to see the place is thinking big!
