Nimrod MR.2 XV250 at Yorkshire Air Museum, 23rd September 2023; Jake Wallace

XV250 was built at Woodford as an MR.1 and made her first flight on 21st January 1971, she was then delivered to RAF Kinloss just a month later. In June 1982, the aircraft was transferred back in RAF Woodford for the MR.2 conversion. XV250 then made her first flight as an MR.2 on 10th June 1983 and was re-delivered to RAF Kinloss.

The airframe was withdrawn from service on 31st March 2010, making her final flight into Elvington on 13th April 2010. XV250 is very well looked after by a team of dedicated volunteers who keep the aircraft in running condition. She often performs anti-det runs in front of the public, alongside Victor XL231 at the museums Thunder Days.
