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.

The early Mk1 originally had a two-blade, fixed-pitch, wooden propeller but this was replaced in 1939 with a three-blade metal, variable-pitch airscrew. Early Mk1s were fitted with an awkward hand-pump-operated landing gear system which proved difficult for novice Spitfire pilots because it necessitated changing hands over from throttle to pump lever (leaving the left hand to operate the control stick). As the pilot pumped away, his left hand would tend to rock the stick back and forth in unison, This resulting in what was called ‘Spitfire wobble’. Another side-effect was ‘Spitfire knuckle’ - suffered by pilots rapping their knuckles on the cockpit sides as they pumped the handle! In the Mk1A this awkward system was replaced by an all-hydraulic unit which had a simple lever with gates to operate the landing gear. Both types can be found in this simulation.

Throughout 1940, apart from the landing gear controls, the basic design and layout of the Spitfire remained unchanged. A larger ‘bubble’ canopy was also added to the Mk1A for increased head clearance. This is how you can tell a Mk1A from an earlier Mk1.

The inspiration for this simulation comes from the stories of two early Spitfires which fell whilst defending ground forces at Dunkirk. The first is P9374 ‘J’, an early Mk1 flown by Fg Off Peter Cazenove on his first combat mission, and the second machine is N3200 ‘QV‘. This Mk1 was flown by Sqn Ldr Geoffrey Stephenson on an operation over Calais to protect the BEF as they were evacuated on 27th May 1940. N3200, like its sister, remained buried in the wet sands for more than 40 years until it was re-discovered in 1986 and both these aeroplanes were eventually restored to flying condition. P9374 took to the skies again in 2011, and N3200 in 2014. They are among the earliest examples of Mk1 Spitfires currently flying and are a beautiful testament to the skills of the restoration company responsible for their rebirth.

In this simulation you will also find examples of Mk1As which fought in the Battle of Britain and were piloted by some of that battle's Aces.

TURBINE SOUND STUDIOS - BOEING 777-GE90-115B SOUNDPACK FSX P3D
Erich Berner
Superbly engineered sound set. Normally, PMDG provide excellent soundpacks for their aircraft, but this is actually an improvement over the PMDG set. After flying the PMDG 777 since it came out, I only just recently replaced the sounds with the TSS soundpack and was very pleasantly surprised. This replacement is very well designed for external AND virtual cockpit perspectives. Start-up sounds are particularly satisfying.

Sceneries are gorgeous.. but experience bad micro stutters every time on approach right down to landing. Night being worst than day especially view from wing. Suspect some of the custom buildings or texture leading to the airport causes the stuttering..

Did not see much review on this scenery.. didn't look good when first saw it on simmarket. Pleasantly surprise that this scenery is actually very good. Scenery is of fairly high quality, both day and night look gorgeous, and performance is reasonable but of cos I have a rather powerful computer and spec, otherwise the plenty of palm trees around the airport might be a little hard on the FPS I guess.

Amazing job MK! The best performance ever your sceneries. The airport is up to date, and the details are amazing, great gpoly and 3d models. Thanks a lot MK!

Generally gd scenery but only gave 3 starsThe becauae i find many of the building's window appear more like there were actually no window at all as you can see through it completely be it day or night.. which I find very unrealistic. Query to support also receive NO response.

Matthew Simmons
Great scenery, I have been enjoying it since the first versions came out a while ago. Only thing I would change is the SODE jetways, they aren't the best I've seen. Parts of them disappear while moving, the hood doesn't extend, etc. Other than that, the scenery is beautiful.
