News! - Aircraft Released : Supermarine Spitfire Mk IXc  by FlyingIron


Any reference to the Battle of Britain and you automatically think of Boris Johnson!... oh sorry, not Brexit, but the other Battle of Britain and against basically the same foes... Lately the British don't have what advantage they had back then in the thirties with just the perfect fighter for cutting up the European Schumpeterian democracy...  


But in X-Plane we now do with the release of FlyingIron's Supermarine Spitfire Mk IXc, this is FlyingIron's second release after the Republic P-47N Thunderbolt, which in my eyes was the most ugliest aircraft to ever fly. Which is one thing you could never hold against the Spitfire, as this lovely creation was the ballerina against the rheumatoid negroitis (google it).

Flight Model
  • Highly detailed & realistic simulation of the Spitfire Mk IX, performance matched to be within a few % of real-world data in all aspects of flight
  • Custom simulation of the differential braking system & ground handling
  • Tested by a team of real-world pilots to ensure accuracy & realism
  • Simulation of unique Spitfire quirks, such as the need for nose-down trim on take-off and many, many more.
  • Realistic spin & stall behavior for aerobatic flying
Complex Engine Simulation
  • Code-enhanced simulation of both the Merlin 66 & Merlin 70 engines, with the ability to switch between the two in-cockpit

But the manual isn't completed yet? which makes for a first look around and even a first flight a bit of a head scratcher?...    the brake handle anyone? so I will just show you some nice pictures of all the nice things you don't know what to do with yet...
