Original Sound files by Dan Hopgood
Dom Henry and I have collaborated on quite a few aircraft projects for X-Plane11, where I created the external model and cockpit shell, and Dom created the cockpit, the sounds and physics. A special thank you to Dom for letting me use his cockpit work, without which it is unlikely the project would have ever been completed
A special thank you to Bertrand too, for the use of his pilot figures. It’s a difficult thing to create pilot figures that look human without using a lot of polys. He has created a number of these figures, that Dom and I have used in our aircraft and we’re very grateful to him for it.
Thanks to Dan Hopgood for the use of his Spitfire sound files. The default Corsair sounds just wouldn’t have been as good for this Aircraft Add on, being an In line engine rather than a radial.

The Prototype: The Spitfire needs little introduction to aviation enthusiasts. The Subject of this release is the Mark 1a (Late). Aircraft in Later production runs had features that became standard on later Marks of Spitfire. The Canopy glass instead of having flat sides, with a popout panel, was fully blown, having bulged sides that gave better visibility. Also the Exhaust stacks where of the style that became known as fishtail exhausts. It is a separate and self contained Add On. See Included USER GUIDE for more information.
