Nimrod Sortie. An 802 Squadron Nimrod II taking off for a sortie from HMS Glorious in the Mediterranean in the early 1930’s. In this piece I am trying to show the 1930’s Nimrod in it’s proper environment, at sea. The aircraft carrier, HMS Glorious, is a still I took from an old black and white video on the internet and hand coloured it.
This Hawker Nimrod II, serial number S1581, is currently based at Duxford, UK and is owned by the Historic Aircraft Association.
