Supermarine Seafire, June 2010

I’ve uploaded a new recording of the Kennet Aviation Supermarine Seafire on my field-recording website. More information available from my field-recording Supermarine Seafire page.

Supermarine Spitfire PR.11 PL965/R

This Merlin engined Spitfire PR.11 PL965 (G-MKXI) turned up at Old Warden at the weekend and did a fantastic display. The sound I recorded starts with the aircraft looping over the field and then a fast flyover right on axis with my mic setup. Another one of the great aircraft at Hanger 11, North Weald. […]

Supermarine Seafire, 5th July 2009

Supermarine Seafire sound recorded on 5th July 2009 at Old Warden. See also [post="supermarine-seafire-take-off"] [post="seafire-sea-hurricane-corsair-wildcat"] [post="supermarine-seafire-3rd-june-2007"] More Seafire recordings here: http://www.field-recording.org.uk/supermarine-seafire/

Seafire, Sea Hurricane, Corsair, Wildcat

This is one of my favourite recordings. Completely by suprise a formation of Hawker Sea Hurricane, Supermarine Seafire, Grumman F4F Wildcat and a Vought Corsair flew over as a prelude to a naval themed display at Old Warden, 3rd June 2007. This recording was taken using minidisc and an AT-822 so dynamics are limited to […]

Supermarine Seafire 3rd June 2007

A recording of a Supermarine Seafire taken on 3rd June 2007. The aircraft was displaying as a naval group (Sea Hurricane, Corsair, Wildcat) at Old Warden. Recorded using a minidisc and an AT-822. The mp3 version doesn’t do the recording justice (despite high VBR bitrate) unfortunately. If you’d like copy of the original uncompressed version […]

Supermarine Spitfire MK XVI

This Spitfire MK XVIE CBAF.IX.4262 (G-OXVI) was recorded in 2008 at the Little Gransden Airshow, UK. Not too sure about these later mark Spitifires but a little research would indicate this a Packard built Rolls-Royce Merlin. If anyone can confirm this, I’d appreciate it. This aircraft is operated by Spitfire Ltd. There’s quite a bit […]

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 […]

Supermarine Spitfire MK XI

This is the sound of a Supermarine Spitfire MKXI starting up. The recorded aircraft is operated by Hanger 11, North Weald, Essex, UK and was being displayed at Old Warden Aerodrome, UK.
