Buchon takes to the skies
Hispano Buchon D-FMVS made its first flight since overhaul on May 12th 2010. The Merlin-engined Messerschmitt Bf 109 was previously based in the USA and was put up for sale on Courtesy Aircraft Sales web site. It has been re-assembled in Germany by Meier Motors.
Back in the UK Buchon activity is rife; after the re-paint of HFL's Buchon into Battle Of Britain scheme (two former schemes are seen attatched to this post) they have also completed ground runs of privately owned G-AWHE. The latter has been finished in Bf109F colours based at Quotaifiya, Egypt - a desert scheme.
