And if you look closely at the throttle quadrant, you'll notice the crew have throttled back (more likely shutdown) engines #1 & #4

Now that's what I call an action-shot. I just love this unusual photo. Brilliant work.

Top image. Nice to see this popping up. With regards to the height from the Australian poster, it is very low (100 ft on my time flying in the MR2) for an aircraft of this size it almost looks abnormal from the outside, and non regular fliers of the type are renowned for throwing up in 'the vomit comet'.

I love the Nimrod. How something that size can be that agile is beyond me!

The hardest thing was being down the back eating a chicken curry at the time. Often grumpy comments from the rearcrew if the pilots didn't warn, "Bank coming on."

What an Aircraft! Having supported the Nimrod Ri & MR2 for some 25 + years it is sad to see the very agile, Mighty (Hunter) Nimrod go out of service. The picture is awesome tho.
