Farewell to the Rock


Nimrod MR2 as it bid farewell to Gibraltar

Picture of the Nimrod MR2 as it bid farewell to Gibraltar yesterday morning. Known as 'Mighty Hunter' it has enjoyed a long association with the Rock - it was its first overseas flight back in 1969.

The photograph was taken as the Nimrod completed several circuits of the Rock prior to setting off for RAF Kinloss.

The replacement Nimrod, once it starts flying, will have the Rock as a popular destination.

SPANISH JET

PANORAMA has been informed that as the Nimrod took off at about 11.25am yesterday, it had to be warned that a Spanish military jet was flying east of Gibraltar at about 700 feet.
