    I'd like to share a sound recording I made at RAF Hendon on the 12th September of a single Spitfire from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

    The recording is here.

    To me, its sounds like a Griffon. Can anyone tell me which aircraft it is? I've tried a few image searches but nothing yet.

    Certainly sounds more like the Griffon than the Merlin engine, so I'd guess it would be the Mk19. If it had a five-bladed prop, and deep, twin radiators beneath the wings, then it was the Mk19. Sorry, not sure what colour scheme the BBMF's Spit 19 wears at the moment.

    I'm gonna go with either of the BBMFs MkXIX.
