About This File

FS2004/FSX SAAF Spitfire MK IX, South Africa. Post war SAAF ordered 136 Spitfire Mk IX's, which were delivered from 1947 onwards. It is not clear why the SAAF ordered Merlin engined Spitfires, unlike the Rhodesian Air force which ordered more modern Griffon engined variants. The aircraft allocated to Nos 1, 2 4 and 60 Squadrons as well as the bombing, gunnery and navigation school. No. 60 Sqn used their Spitfires in a reconnaissance capacity, having an oblique camera installed behind the cockpit and two vertical cameras in the fuselage. Equiped with rocket rails and bomb racks, the Spitfires played an important role in familiarising pilots with these weapons prior to their departure for the war in Korea. In 1954 the last of the Spitfires were withdrawn from service in the SAAF. Tested in FS2004/FSX/FSX Acceleration, Windows 7/8. Gmax model by A.F. Scrub.
