A sad day for the Nimrod family.....My thoughts are with you all ....God Bless.

"Its times like this when we all put our differences behind us and come together in the aviation world" thats how special it is to be in aviation.

14 more of the UK’s Finest lost, and for what.....?
RIP comrades

Lord, guard and guide the men who fly
Through the great spaces in the sky,
Be with them always in the air,
In dark'ning storms or sunlight fair.
O, Hear us when we lift our prayer,
For those in peril in the air.

Rev. Dykes adaptation of "Eternal Father, Strong to Save" 1861

To the MOD, can we have a book of Condolences in the sticky section so when tragic events like this happen which we all know "Sad to say it" wont be the last, we can leave our thoughts to lost aviation friends!!!!!!!!
