Nimrod MR.2 XV241 at National Museum of Flight, 22nd October 2014; Mike Overs

Displayed at the 1970 Farnborough show when she was brand new to introduce the type to the public, XV241 was one of the first batch of production MR.1s and went on to be converted to MR.2 in the early 1980s. From 1996 to 1998 she wore a blue fin with a large '206' on it, marking the 80th anniversary of 206 Squadron. XV241 made her final flight into RAF Kinloss in 2010. She was then scrapped in February 2011, with the front fuselage arriving at the National Museum of Flight in East Fortune on the 10th February 2011 for display.

The photo above shows her undercover and well looked after in October 2014.
