RIAT 2009, cropped. re cropped
Sweet. The crop looks good.
Good shot. And this is precisely why you got a watch from me.
beautiful plane, a vangaurd againt soviet submarines, what possessed the government to retire these beauties?
I like this photo!
I have to say, it kind of uglys of the smooth lines of the Comet
oddly ive always thought the nimrod was the more attractive aircraft.
For me, the bulge, I assume for more equipment, along with the stabilizers detract for me. The Comet had a smooth nose line, even if the wings seemed more like they where off a Piper Cub, then a modern jet design
haha yheer i have to say ive been luck enougth to see both fly, and theres just a sence of power about the nimrod that attracts me, to be fiar the comet was one of the more stunning aircraft ive ever seen, up there with concord on the civi front
I call it the Hamsterplane because it looks like the aircraft has its mouth stuffed with something with that bulge
to fly no more
its a shame, i was always a big fan of the nimrod.
thats a big yes
its made even more strange as when i was younger i saw the last ever DH Comet display at Fairford, theres somthing poetic about that.
