The '''Martin-Baker MB-5''' was a British aircraft developed at the end of the second world war. Although it never saw production, it compared well with contemporary fighter aircraft. The contra-rotating propellers eliminated much of the disadvantage of prop driven fighters at the time, and provided good acceleration.

==Flying== Starting the MB-5 (v20111202 from Flight Gear Aircraft Version 2.6 download page) with its impressive contrarotating propellers consists of tapping "SHIFT M" 3 times, "SHIFT }" 3 times, tapping the throttle key "pg UP" 3 times and pressing 's' to start.
The aircraft starts with its brakes off, so it starts rolling on startup. The stick must be held back a moderate amount to prevent a deadly and uncontrollable ground loop, with the MB-5 cavorting all over the field otherwise. I would think the contra-rotating props should have prevented this.
Overall a fast and pleasant aircraft to fly.
