In 1942, the Spanish government arranged a manufacturing license with Messerschmitt AG to build the Bf 109G-2, with DB605A engines, propellers, instruments, and weapons to be supplied from Germany.

This proved impossible, as Germany was incapable of meeting her own needs, let alone Spain’s. Only twenty-five airframes (minus their tails) and not even half the necessary drawings were delivered.

Post World War II, production resumed on the Buchón’s and the final variant was the HA-1112-M1L Buchón. It first flew 29 March 1954. The 1112-M1L was equipped with the 1,600 hp Rolls-Royce Merlin 500-45 engine and Rotol propeller, both purchased as surplus from the UK.


The aircraft is the last remaining example of the Messerschmitt family available in original ‘as last flown’ condition. As such, the window of opportunity to be the proud owner of such an iconic aircraft will be fleeting, he who hesitates will lose!

Whatever your background or location, whether an individual or a corporation and no matter if historic aviation appeals or not, those with vision will realize the potential associated with this aircraft given its provenance -whether it purely for future financial appreciation or ‘just’ the prestige of being the proud owner of a slice of aviation history.

Upon completion of the filming of the Battle Of Britain, they were disassembled and shipped to Texas where they have been in storage for 45 years.
