Hispano-Suiza HS-42A: That Spain….

Hispano-Suiza HS-42A: That Spain….

This is how the wooden wing of the HS-42 prototype (the fuselage went in another truck) was carried from the old Hispano factory in the very Sevillian “Barrio de Triana” to the Tablada Airport.
The HS-42 was the first aircraft designed in Spain after the Fascists won the Spanish Civil War and the Yugo y las Flechas (Yoke and Arrows) Falangist symbol on the “Torre del Oro” is,well…,a bad taste reminder.
