Hispano Aviación HA-1112 K1L: Jotas in disguise.

Hispano Aviación HA-1112 K.1.L:Tripalas in disguise.

These “J-otas” are the lesser-known of the two Spanish made combat variants of the Bf 109. Often mistaken with the famous RR Merlin engined Buchón, these 109’s were equipped with French designed HS-89 12-Z-7 / 1-Z-M  licence-built engines, in Barcelona.
This still image was captured from the German movie based in the life of the legendary Ace Hans-Joachim Marseille: “Der Stern von Afrika” of 1957. A great deal of it was filmed, quite adequately, here in Spain: Sunny skies and “Messers”, you know.

Yeah, “Messers” again. Mea culpa.
