Supermarine Aircraft Sound Recordings

Supermarine was a British aircraft manufacturer that became famous for producing a range of sea planes and the legendary Supermarine Spitfire fighter.

The first Supermarine landplane design to go into production was the famous and successful Spitfire. The earlier Hawker Hurricane and the Spitfire were the mainstay of RAF Fighter Command fighter aircraft which fought off the Luftwaffe bombing raids with fighter escorts during the Battle of Britain in the summer of 1940. While the Hurricane was available in larger numbers and consequently played a larger role, the new Spitfire caught the popular imagination and became the aircraft associated with the battle.

Other well-known planes from World War II were the Seafire (a naval version of the Spitfire). Supermarine also developed the Spiteful and Seafang, the successors of the Spitfire and Seafire, resp., and the Walrus flying boat.

The last of the Supermarine aircraft was the Supermarine Scimitar. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supermarine

The Supermarine Spitfire was a Rolls-Royce powered fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries through the Second World War an later.

Supermarine Spitfire MkVc AR501The Spitfire was designed by R. J. Mitchell, chief designer at Supermarine. Its elliptical wing had a thin cross-section, allowing a higher top speed than the Hawker Hurricane and many other contemporary designs.

The Supermarine Spitfire achieved legendary status during the Battle of Britain. There was, and still is, a public perception that it was the RAF fighter of the battle, although the more numerous Hawker Hurricane actually shouldered a greater proportion of the burden against the Luftwaffe.

After the Battle of Britain, the Supermarine Spitfire became the backbone of RAF Fighter Command and saw action in the European Theatre, Pacific Theatre and the South-East Asian theatre. Much loved by its pilots, the Spitfire saw service in several roles and was built in many different variants.

The Spitfire is famous for its use of Rolls-Royce Merlin and Griffon engines. Supermarine Spitfires continue to be restored and operated in increasing numbers. Sound recordings of these aircraft are some of the most exciting.

Supermarine Spitfire MKIIa, P7350, Sound Recording

This is a recording of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight MK2a Rolls-Royce Merlin engined Spitfire P7350. P7350 is the oldest airworthy Spitfire and is the only the only flying Spitfire that flew during the Battle of Britain. P7350 was manufactured at Castle Bromwich and entered service in August 1940 serving with 266 squadron fields at Wittering and Hornchurch.

This aircraft was recorded during May 2008 at The Shuttleworth Collection, Old Warden, Bedfordshire, UK, where it flew a brief display without the rest of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

Supermarine Spitfire MkVc, AR501

The Shuttleworth Collection's MKV Rolls-Royce Merlin powered Supermarine Spitfire, AR501. Recorded August 2006. I think this was one of the last displays of AR501 at Old Warden before going into the Collection's workshop (for what looks like) a complete rebuild. It's probably never going to sound the same again!

Supermarine Spitfire Flypast, RAF Hendon, 12 September 2010

The sound of a single Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight giving a short display at RAF Hendon to mark 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. The sound was recorded in a busy crowd but for once, this was the only distraction.

Not sure what mark this was although it sounds like a Griffon. The BBMF operates 2 Mk XIX Spits, so this is either Spitfire PS915 (Mk PRXIX) or Spitfire PM631 (Mk PRXIX). I'd appreciate any further info anyone has.
