[QUOTE=Norma_Stitts]I recall the Antanov brought in 3 of the Nimrod fuselages for refurb (another Woodford f*** up). They let us all out to stand by the canteen brought it onto the runway. As it was quite a distance away I commented that it didn't look that big. Then they put an RJ next to it and it would have practically fitted under the wings. LOL.

I never realised it could be seen from Adlington and I'm forever going up and down that road.[/QUOTE]Yes indeed norma, we may even have stood next to each other, I remember it well seeing the antonov land with the first nimrod fuselage, If I recall, the original contract to refirb the nimrods was snatched back , this is why the fuse was flown in because it had already been stripped down. I was employed at woodford for 15 years, how long was there there for norma,? also if vulcanman wishes to get in touch, I can give him the latest info on the vulcan (603) that was moved recently.
