Aeroplane Heaven has issued a service update for their Spitfire Mk1A. The update aims to fix a number of issues that users have been experiencing with the plane since its release just under two weeks ago. The update, that goes by the name ‘Service Update 1.4‘, contains changes to the plane model, flight model and textures.
