The Hawker Siddeley Nimrod was a maritime patrol aircraft of the Royal Air Force that served from 1969 to 2011. It was derived from the De Havilland Comet, the world’s first operational jet airliner, with extensive modifications to the fuselage, wings, and engines. The Nimrod had several variants, including the MR1/MR2 for anti-submarine warfare and maritime surveillance, the R1 for electronic intelligence gathering, the AEW3 for airborne early warning, and the MRA4 for maritime reconnaissance and attack. The Nimrod was named after one of the expeditions of the polar explorer Ernest Shackleton, whose name was also used for the Nimrod’s predecessor, the Avro Shackleton.
