Hispano Aviación HA-200 Saeta: Straigh to my heart.

There is something about the Saeta (arrow)  I’ve found always irresistible, its nose affair. That gorgeous intake feeding the pair screamy Turbomeca Marborés mounted side-by-side in the forward fuselage. A quite unique engine configuration similar to some Soviet jobs of the era, maybe because like those the Saeta was a sort of jet engine derivate of a previous piston design.

This pic lovely capture that “charm” of the Saeta. The plain and clean Single visor HGU-26/P (an utterly wild guess of mine here) is ready. Sadly this Saeta of the Spanish “Fundación Infante de Orleans” was tragically lost with its pilot almost three years ago, May 5th 2013.
