What is that?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know what this flap/hatch is for? It only appears on landing in the Spitfire Mk IXe.

As Andy said but bear in mind the Spitfire has only two flap positions, up or down.

I am just wondering why the flap indicator is casting a shadow onto the wing but those other two bulges are not. They seem to have shadows on themselves but not causing any shadows on the wing.

Shhhh! It wasn't faked by Stanley Kubrick on a sound stage in area 51. Honest! 🤐
