Just seen the announcement that the first of the Poseidon aircraft will be arriving in Scotland - after 10 years without a viable aircraft to do the role.
I was one of those brave souls that worked on the design of the Nimrod MR4A at the Airbus site in Bristol.
We probably shouldn’t go into all the politics of the scrapping of the aircraft and the cancelling of the project, I’m just slightly annoyed that we went with a Boeing aircraft.
As the UK designs and builds all the wings for Airbus aircraft, maybe something based on an existing Airbus aircraft could have been done?
Any thoughts out there?
