Patricia Forrest - Nimrod Patrol
Aircraft Birthday Cards - Hawker / BAE Nimrod by Aviation Artist Patricia Forrest
In the late evening a lone Nimrod returns home from a maritime reconnaissance patrol. The aircraft took over from the venerable Avro Shackleton in the late 1960s and was gradually updated to take new avionics and take on new roles. After a number of unfortunate accidents the aircraft were grounded in 2010.
