Now up for sale with Platinum Fighters are six long-time residents of Connie Edwards’ hangar at Big Spring, Texas. Five examples of the Hispano HA-1112-M1L Buchon — the Rolls-Royce Merlin powered, Spanish built Messerschmitt 109 — and a Supermarine Spitfire IX, are up for grabs, the Buchons still sporting the markings they wore during production of the Battle of Britain film at Duxford during the summer of 1968. One Buchon, C.4K-112/N1109G, is the sole surviving, HA-1112-M4L two- seat trainer. It was flown during 1968 by Adolph Galland and Robert Stanford-Tuck.

The Spitfire IX, MH415, has not flown since 1973, and has an extensive combat history, having served with 129, 222 and 126 Sqns during the war. None of the Buchons have flown since 1968. More details at www.platinumfighters.com
