I assume you heard about the 5 Buchons that were just recently pulled out of a barn in Texas and put up for sale. www.platinumfighters.com/#!ha-…
All 5 are originals that where used in the Battle of Britain movie.  There's also a two-seat Buchon for sale too! www.platinumfighters.com/#!ha-…

I did indeed here about it, hopefully they will all make it back to airworthy status and maybe even make it back into Spanish liveries (I won't hold my breath :) )

It's always good to hear about more airframes potentially available for restoration though.

So very similar to the styling of the Spitfire, which I thought it was, but in the wrong livery. :?

This is quite the opposite of the Spitfire and is in fact the Spits foe the Messerschmitt BF-109. However this is slightly different because it was built post war for the Spanish Air Force. Due to lack of original German type engines it was powered by the famed Rolls Royce Merlin which I'm sure you know powered the Spitfire. They called it the Buchon, which apparently means Sea Gull. Though not actually being able to speak Spanish I don't know that for sure. The German markings are purely for airshows and it should be in Spanish colours for authenticity but there are so few original German fighters left and the Spitfire needs an opponent during these mock dogfights.

I understand its enemy status. But on first sight, it looked so similar.

Thanks for the rest of the info. At least they fitted it with a good engine.

I used Google translator, and it didn't recognise Buchon. So I typed in Seagull in English, and the Spanish result is gaviota. :?

After a quick google I found that according to wikipedia, Buchon actually means a male dove or a pelican in Spanish. I don't know where I got Sea Gull from? I guess I some wires got crossed in my brain. :D
