All Nimrod MR2 Aircraft Grounded Due To Fuel Pipes

Sat Feb 24, 2007 12:54 am

Breaking on Sky News right now.
Apparently all MR2s grounded (unclear for how long, but there is a time pressure rgding it) due to fuel pipe problems. Possibly linked with the downing of an MR2 last September.
Limited imformation (more to come) here

The media often tend to show the wrong aircraft.
Exceptions confirm the rule.
