Iíve just found some pictures of 230, that I took May 2005. It was the last time she visited the paint shop at Norwich airport.
I appreciate the sensitivity of all, and wondered if itís out of order to post them or not?
Your feedback greatly appreciated, and obviously if Iím out of order, apologies

Hi Colt, personally I think this thread is probably best left for the families, friends and acquaintances of those lost.

I have just trawled the old threads and this one would be ideal

http://www.pprune.org/military-aviat...rod-pic-3.html

There are a few threads running on platform types at the moment and hopefully you will prompt a few more to post Nimrod photos, perhaps you could suggest a new Maritime Monday thread?

Regards, Ivan

At Last...

Good news, well 'good' in a Facebook Like sort of way, the stonemasons are out in Davyhulme this week!

After many years of struggling with bureaucracy Gary Q's name is being added to the war memorial at Davyhulme circle. [This is two years after a Naval officer was added to another North West War memorial after being shot by one of his own crew whilst tied up in a friendly port, yes I know some in the Navy don't count Southampton and a friendly port!]

A short dedication service at the memorial will be held on:

Sunday 22nd November
14:00
Davyhulme War Memorial

Followed by beer & bullshit at:

John Alker Club
(Flixton Ex-Servicemen's Association)

So if you knew Q, and he doesn't owe you money, your are welcome.

PM me for any more info.

21 years ago, and I still remember watching it as if it was yesterday.

RIP both crews.

Crew 3 portraits still on the BBC website - so poignant.

RIP all 21.

It's hard to believe it's been 10 years and 21 years respectively.

I too will raise a glass this evening and remember all those guys as they were. For the families though it must still be incredibly hard and my heart really goes out to them on this day.

RIP
