Hi all
im posting as one of the crew who work on Nimrod XV232 at Coventry airport. We are in need of a supply of cheap (even better free! ) JetA1 fuel. We usually are able to get supplied via old aircraft whose fuel may have been contaminated and no good for flying, it is though perfectly fine for our static engine runs.
Weve got 4 magnificent Spey engines that we need to run on a regular basis.
many of thanks for reading and if anyone is able to help or signpost us please get in touch either by this forum or our Facebook group Nimrod Preservation Group XV232

Have you found a source of hydraulic fluid OX87 at all we have tried everywhere including the manufacturer who told us to speak to you. We have Nimrod XW664
