Here's a good quality Youtube Spitfire Mk IX video showing the Spit starting up it's Rolls Royce Merlin engine and doing a runup. The sound on this one is outstanding. Another Spitfire Mk IX Youtube video shows a Mk IX doing flybys at an airshow. The sound of this Spitfire is just awesome!

This particular aircraft is owned by the Russel Air Group and was just visiting. It's an example of the surprises you might find in terms of visiting aircraft should you pay a visit to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.
