An RAF Nimrod MR2 on patrol in the skies over the ice, it is shown with two submarines

An RAF Nimrod MR2 on patrol in the skies over the North Pole, it is shown with two RN submarines just breaking through the ice.
The Nimrod MR1 entered service in 1969 and was upgraded to MR2 standard in the late 1970s. While the flight deck and general systems remained the same, the Mission System was given a significant upgrade. The Nimrod is the only jet powered maritime patrol aircraft in military service and offers the advantages of speed and height in transit, while still capable of operating for long on-task periods.
The Nimrod MR2 continued in service until 2010
