Spitfire Mk.IX Engine Start-up

So, I have been working on improving my video techniques, so hopefully this one is a little better than the previous video 🙂

Nevertheless, what I am trying to show is the fidelity of the HFS Cockpit systems and how beautifully they interact with the DCS World Spitfire Mk.IX. Here in the following video I demonstrate the start-up procedure for the Spit. It’s a little rough, I really need to work with a checklist off a kneeboard until I become really adept at the process and checks required. It’s enough to get the engine going however.

The Intro photos are from the Wally Brunton collection of the South African Air Force No.4 Squadron in Italy, 1945. Maj. M.V. ‘Wally’ Brunton was the OC. No.4 Squadron, Italy, 1945.

This year is the SAAF’s 100th anniversary!

Dedicated to all those brave South Africans who gave their all in the fight against tyranny. As you can see from the photos they came from all walks of life in South Africa. We shall remember them…
