I was, wow, thanks for posting, quality was excellent! I love the 51 howl as it dives down! Apparently this is caused be either the gun ports or the rad intake...either way it's amazing!

Great video and I liked the music too. Shame I couldn't make it to Flying Legends this year.

There is heated debate on the sound apparently it is air moving across the gun ports, just like blowing across a bottle to make the sound. The spitfire has the same engine/supercharger and that does not make the same sound.

I've been told it's the (radiator) scoop.
