FSX Spitfire FVIII 5501. Textures only for the RealAir Spitfire 2008 Mark IX of a fairly rare (cannon + 4 MGs) Spitfire FVIII in bare metal finish and painted in non-standard RAF markings. Currently displayed at the South African National Museum of Military History in Johannesburg, in 1944 this SAAF aircraft was sent from the war zone to South Africa at the specific request of General Smuts -- Churchill's close friend and confidant -- for display purposes to boost morale. Pilots found no discernible differences in handling between the Mk VIII and the the Mk IX versions. 32-bit textures by Grant MacLean/Sean Moloney/RealAir.
