Hispano Aviación l HA-1112 M1L Buchón: At war again

A aircraft already old since its conception,the Buchón was the result of the mating Bf 109G airframes with RR Merlin 500/45 power eggs. Their operational life was quite limited with the arrival of american material at the middle of the 1950s, but that material aid had a catch: it couldn’t be used in colonial affairs. The tribal problems in the Ifni colony in 1958 and its air power needs produced one of those very weird situation: Messers, Junkers and Heinkels at a real war in 1958!!
In this photo one of them “bebiendo agua” (drinkin’ water) in a very dry place, Gando (Canary islands) around 1963.
