FlyingIron has issued yet another update for their Spitfire for MSFS. Update 1.2.1 fixes a few issues that were inadvertently introduced with the previous major update (1.2.0). One of the most notable fixes has to do with the fuel functionality, with changes to the fuel pump, wobble pump and fuel valve logic. There were also fixes made to the flight model to account for updates in Sim Update 9, as well as changes to the sound among other things. Last but not least, the update post by FlyingIron contains a small teaser for one of their upcoming planes, with what appears to be a Focke-Wulf Fw 190 obfuscated in the background.
