Hispano Aviación HA-200 Saeta: Spanish Arrow

In the 1950s Willy Messerschmitt like other WW2 German designers  –Kurt Tank e.g- roamed around looking for a place to continue his work. He reached the then very “Germanophile” Spain where he head the design of the HA-100, a pretty neat piston advanced trainer. Using precisely the expertise learned with the HA-100 Hispano Aviación built the HA-200, Spain’s first turbojet powered aircraft. The result was an advanced jet trainer powered by two Marbore engines. A technological  triumph, this very decent trainer, sadly, lacked commercial success. Only the Ejército del Aire (Spanish AF) and the Egyptians used them.

Stunning photo, nice angle. Its engine configuration was really something, totally cool.
