The number of announcements for Microsoft Flight Simulator content keeps coming and this next one is near and dear to my heart – it’s a Spitfire! Aeroplane Heaven, well known FSX/P3D developers are bringing the Spitfire Mark Ia to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Here’s what we’ve seen so far.
Early days of the aircraft’s exterior
The Mark IA Spitfire was among the earliest Spitfire variants and was the star of the Battle of Britain in the eyes of the British public (thought I will never forget about the Hurricane which equipped 2/3rds of RAF squadrons at the time). Although I do struggle a bit with combat aircraft in a civil flight sim, it’s not a bad thing to have some and enjoy the historical nature of the aircraft in this case.
The first screenshots have just been released and they show some of the exterior work on the aircraft. It’s impressive stuff to be sure.
