Nimrods to Fly Again!

Funny story written by IN SEINE

Tuesday, 22 February 2011

For many weeks, this government have been telling us that they will have to be cutting back on our defence systems. In particular, the £20 billion contract for the Nimrod MR4 Marine reconnaissance aircraft.

In Seine News has discovered that this is really a 'smoke and mirrors' trick to make the rest of the world think that we have no submarine hunting capability. By using Google Earth, a total of four fuselages are seen in various states of being dismantled, apparently never to fly again.

However, in the hangar on the other side of the airfield there are at least nine new aircraft being built as we speak in preparation for Armageddon which is not far away.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman explained that the previous squadrons of nimrods had done such a good job in hunting submarines that there were no longer any around and so the aircraft were deemed to be obsolete. Now, a few years down the line we shall need to have that ability once more and whilst the world thinks that we are broke, manufacture of these magnificent aircraft continue at a pace.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
