Nimrod MR.2 XV255 at City of Norwich Aviation Museum, 22nd August 2019; Nathan Chenery

XV255 made her final flight from RAF Kinloss to Norwich Airport on the 24th May 2010 and was then moved to the museum for display.

XV255 is pretty much a complete airframe including all four of her Rolls Royce engines which are still free, but are starting to show signs of corrosion.
The dedicated volunteers have been restoring her electrical systems the past few years.
