RAF Crews Quit Over Unsafe Nimrod MR2

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. From Mick Smith in the Sunday Times

    Nimrod MR2
  2. Zero lifeing airframes has always been a mystery to me.
    Too much temptation to use old parts to keep cost down, after all if 'IT' never failed before then 'IT' has a 100% servicability record.
    Intresting to see that a series of failures brought the aircraft down and that inflight refueling is now banned.
    I remember old Hueys having bad radio problems, Green Empire silent. Airframe jig purchased for unrelated reasons. 100 % rewireing done on coms during rebuild. Radio problems cured. Suddenly the Green Empire had know all along, it was old wiring, that had caused the problems.
