The Supermarine Spitfire is simply one of the most recognisable aircraft in the world and this new Aeroplane Heaven package for FSX and P3D provides models of the very early Mk1 with the two-bladed Watts propeller, a Mk1 version at the time of Dunkirk in 1940 and the Mk1A in the Battle of Britain era.
Extremely high on detail, the models feature unique animations, goggles and oxygen mask appearing automatically on the pilot at a set altitude, TR9 radio and 'hidden' NAV/COM radios, airframe shake and gauge needle tremble during engine start and idle, authentic start-up and accurately simulated hand-pumped or hydraulic landing gear operation.
