Hispano Aviación HA-1112-M1L “Buchustang”: Quite an actor.

Some of the Buchones dressed up to play as P-51 Mustangs in the classic “Patton” filmed in Spain. In the end they weren’t used in the movie due to some airworthiness bureaucratic problems, but not before the great Perico Santacruz and Colonel Fernando de Artega flew two of them from Biarritz to Barajas without any problems or ill effect due to their fake air scoops….., they were returned to UK by truck.
