X-Plane 9.70 – Float Spitfire Collection. 1.0. During WW2, the need for a long range maritime fighter appeared in the RAF. For that use, a number of Supermarine Spitfires were converted with floats, in order to operate from seaplane bases and disrupt the German and Italian supply lines. Inside the download are three different planes: R6722, the first Mk I converted with Blackburn Skua Floats for use against Germans in Norway, W3760, one of the three Spitfire Mk V converted in Egypt for use in the Mediterranean. MJ892, the only Spitfire Mk IX converted. The Mk V and Mk IX have a beaching gear available (use the standard gear commands to operate it). They come with SASL plugins (tested only in XP9) to enable cold and dark starting from water. Credits goes to Jacques Brault, Dataroots for the sounds. By Thibaud Duhamel.
