Service Description

The world's only surviving Hispano HA-1112-M4L two seat dual control Buchon G-AWHC was produced by La Hispano Aviacion in the 1950’s and was essentially a Messerschmitt BF109G with a british Rolls Royce Merlin engine installed. The Spanish Air Force operated the aircraft until late 1965 and was then placed in storage. This aircraft, and many other Buchons, were then removed from storage and made airworthy again for the film “The Battle of Britain”. During this time, between 1967 and 1968 the aircraft was placed on the UK civil register under the ownership of Spitfire Productions LTD. The aircraft made its last flight during filming in December 1968. The aircraft was then sold, along with many others, to Wilson “Connie” Edwards, of Big Spring Texas, and shipped to the USA in a dismantled state. The aircraft remained in storage in Texas until late 2015 when Air Leasing was tasked to collect the aircraft for its new owners and return it to airworthiness in the UK. The aircraft has a complete set of controls in the relatively spacious rear cockpit and presents the only opportunity to fly in a Messerschmitt 109 anywhere in the world.
