The end is nigh for the Mighty Hunter. The British Ministry of Defence announced last month that they would bring forward the planned retirement date of the Nimrod MR2 to March 2010. This comes despite the MR2's replacement, the Nimrod MRA4, not expected to become operational until 2012, leaving a lengthy time frame in the UK's reconnaissance and SAR capabilities.
