Supermarine Seafire take off

This is Supermarine Seafire F XVII SX 336 taking off from a grass runway. This recording was made at Old Warden Aerodrome, UK, where the aircraft was a ‘visitor’.

Powered by a single liquid-cooled V-12 Rolls-Royce Merlin 55M capable of producing  1,585hp.

The sound and the image are of the same aircraft – the image is via Wikipedia, the sound via a AT822->HiMD.
