This follows the Government’s December announcement of the intention to withdraw the Nimrod MR2 force 12 months early and slow the introduction of the MRA4.
Kevin Taylor, Managing Director of Military Air Solutions commented: “Whilst we regret having to make this announcement we have to respond to the changes in the UK’s defence programme. We will work with our employees and their representatives to explore ways of mitigating these potential job losses. We will continue to assess the impact of the Ministerial announcement on our other facilities.”
