The Hispano 1112 was a Spanish licence-built Messerschmidt 109G; first flown in 1944, initial examples had Hispano-Suiza engines. The Merlin version first flew in 1954, named ‘Buchon’ (Pelican) because of its prominent chin radiator fairing; 172 were built. A batch of retired examples was acquired for the 1969 film Battle of Britain. This Duxford-based Historic Flying Ltd example originally had a Hispano engine and was later fitted with a Merlin; it is seen here displaying at Farnborough 2010.
