First production Nimrod MRA4 takes to the skies

The first production Nimrod MRA4 has taken off from BAE's Woodfood facilities. Following the flight test the aircraft then landed in Norwich to be outfitted in RAF colours. The aircraft is the first of 9 production MRA4s to be built though the 4th MRA4 to date (of course there was originally going to be 21). The type is close to being ready for the RAF to take over, it will then hopefully begin 30 years service.

Let's hope they don't get chastised like the other Nimrod's were.

A great sight at airshows is The Nimrod.
