So that was a later version of the original Comet? Did it last long in service, and so you know service dates? It looks to be superbly modified and finished.....very nice!
Best regards, Terry

Terry,

As I understand from a Wickipedia entry the Nimrod Maritime Patrol aircraft was in service from 1969 until 2010. They were used for Anti Submarine warfare, as an airborne early warning platform and search & rescue operations.The aircraft were based on the Comet 4.

Chris.

An example below of the final version with new BOAC tail transfer and grey metallic finish (+ new yellow richly illustrated box), which landed on my private airport a few days ago. It is striking that the box illustration shows the old white BOAC tail, whereas a previous blue striped box shows the new all-blue tail (see post #24 above). Kind regards, Jan
