Hispano Buchon G-BWUE
My depiction of Hispano Buchon HA-112-M1L in the 'Yellow 10' markings it wore as one of the stand-ins for German Luftwaffe Messerschmitt Bf 109s in the 1969 film Battle of Britain. These were Spanish-built versions of the 109 which - like Spitfires - used Rolls-Royce Merlin engines. This machine, built in 1959, was one of a batch of aircraft given to the American pilot Wilson 'Connie' Edwards for his work on the Battle of Britain. Sold back to UK owners in the 1990s it is now operated by Historic Flying Ltd, based at Duxford airfield in Cambridgeshire, with the UK registration G-BWUE.
