    Non story,
    The NMSU at Kinloss only has 2 hangers,with the maintainance of these jets mainly done now by civvie contractors,all they are doing is playing catch up,Besides,if they ground all the nimrods,who or what's going to provide SAR cover?Certainly not helicopters as they dont have teh range or endurance the MR2's have.
