Today sees the last flight of the Nimrod MR2 fleet following over 30 years of service. The Nimrod MR2 will mark its last operational flight with a flypast of airfields in the north of Scotland before the fleet is retired. Over the last few days, MR2s have visited some of the air bases that have helped form its history, such as the former RAF St Mawgan (now Newquay International Airport) and in Guernsey (to mark 201’s Squadron’s affiliation with the Island). On Friday 26 March VIPs, RAF personnel, their families and a number of veterans attended an event at RAF Kinloss to mark the last days of the aircraft. Attendees had the opportunity to look round a Nimrod aircraft, tour some exhibitions covering the operational role of the MR2 over its last 31 years including its Search and Rescue role.
