Discover the challenge of flying an aircraft derived from the legendary Messerschmitt Bf-109G2, a story beginning in 1942 and yet still going to this day.

The story begins as a project to build a license-built version of the Bf-109G2, but a lack of parts prompted Hispano Aviación to come up with creative engineering solutions. These eventually transformed into a uniquly Spanish aircraft: the Buchón. Quietly successful  in its Spanish Air Force role, which ended in 1965, the Buchón had an astonishing re-birth following its use in the 1969 film "Battle of Britain", portraying Bf-109's.

Since then the Buchón has been a sought-after aircraft for restoration in many guises and appears today in a wide variety of paint schemes and restorations at airshows around the world. The Buchón retains much of the Bf-109's flying characteristics - so be prepared to use all your piloting skills.

 

History

In 1942, the Spanish government arranged a manufacturing license with Messerschmitt AG to build the Bf-109G-2. The DB 605A engines, propellers, instruments and weapons were to be supplied from Germany. However, this proved impossible as Germany was incapable of meeting its own needs let alone Spain's, and only twenty-five airframes (without their tails) and less than half the necessary drawings were actually delivered. Although Spain attempted to use and develop the aircraft in any case, flying several examples, lack of engines forced a considerable re-design to accommodate new power plants. It wasn't until 1951 that a suitably developed version was accepted, that being the HA.1112.1KLwith the Hispano-Suiza, HS 17-12Z engine. Although 200 were planned only 65 were built. Continued searching for a successful airframe meant that a final variant was eventually developed, that being the HA.1112.M1L, the subject of this simulator package.

The HA-1112-M1L was named the "Buchón" (Pouter), which translates as a male dove in Spanish. It first flew on 29 March 1954 with a 1,600 hp Rolls-Royce Merlin 500-45 engine and Rotol propeller, both purchased as surplus from the UK. This engine and chin intake considerably altered the aircraft’s appearance.

It was an improvised assembly of outdated components, but this was acceptable for the intended purpose of controlling Spanish colonial territories in Africa, where more sophisticated technology was both unnecessary and unavailable in politically isolated Spain at the time. The aircraft carried two 20 mm Hispano-Suiza 404/408 cannons and two Oerlikon or Pilatus eight-packs of 80 mm rockets and remained in service until 27 December 1965. 172 were built.

Due to their longevity, Buchóns have appeared in several war films masquerading as Bf-109E's and G's, very notably in the 1969 film Battle of Britain (alongside CASA 2.111 bombers, a Spanish-built version of the Heinkel He 111). Buchons also played the Bf-109's opposition the film, the Hawker Hurricane, in one scene. Buchóns can be seen in such films as Der Stern von Afrika, Memphis Belle, Dunkirk, The Tuskegee Airmen, Dunkirk and may others. Remarkably,  more and more Buchóns are being restored, some re-engined and very close to the Bf-109 form, and are likely to be seen in films and airshows around the world for many years to come.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         (source: Wikipedia)

incroyable , l'immersion que ca procure , et ca nous oblige à bien prononcer et sortir de notre silence , un apprentissage tout de meme à prendre car il ya phraseologie précise à employer mais une fois qu'on a capter le truc c'est une immersion supplémentaire Bravo au dévelloppeur et je pense on peut dire MERCI à TAYLOR STILL de nous avoir fait découvrir ca sur sa page et surtout de nous avoir motiver et experimenter ce programme.
TROPICALSIM - ALBUQUERQUE INTL KABQ MSFS
Eric
For a Payware airport this should be a self install rather than a manual extract to proper file location. After follow the directions from this developer scenery still fails to load. This try of scenery really is meant for location on AvSim. If developer reaches out for better install instruction; or better yet, how about a .exe file extension for auto install.
LATINVFR - AIRBUS A321NEO MSFS
David
Very good performance and aerodynamics and a surprising product. The plane is not so far from Aerosoft and PMDG standards.
SLH SIM DESIGNS - LA DÉSIRADE AIRPORT TFFA MSFS

Very good scene my friend, I love your work, keep up the good work, the Caribbean comes to life on MSFS.
HIFI TECH - ACTIVE SKY CLOUD ART FSX P3D3-5
Pierre-Olivier
Flying only in VR , ASCA combined with Active Skyv (meteo engine) is a "must have". Huge diversity of clouds , real time clouds texture, the immersion is perfect and the impact is very low even if the clouds layer is covered.
SOUTH OAK CO - EMERGENCY LIGHTS - USA MSFS
Mark
Adds life and drama to the night and I especially appreciate that there are multiple emergency light patterns used. Highly recommended, especially given the wide coverage area.
CLOUDSURF ASIA SIMULATIONS - MEGA MANILA SCENERY FOR MSFS
Mark
Well crafted, with good night lighting. Includes good coverage of Manila's highrises. Works great with the freeware Manila mods in my collection. Highly recommended.
TABURET - C.AMERICA CARIBBEAN S.AMERICA GA TRAFFIC MSFS
Mark
Quite effective at adding a bit of life to the surrounding skies. The traffic density is quite believable, occasional and not too busy, and the models are good. This is a bargain given the vast area covered. Highly recommended!
TABURET - SINGAPORE MALAYSIA 10 M DEM MSFS
Mark
After flying the Malaysian part of the Malaysian Peninsula, I can report that this package makes the mountains look great. The lowlands no longer randomly undulate, and both the flowing water and water bodies align well with this DEM. Only the cities still suffer from random lumps and spikes, hence my awarding only four stars, though I can understand why the author might avoid cities, as they have done with the airport. Performance was also excellent; I didn't notice any drop in frame rate. I highly recommend this package as it is a massive improvement over the default mesh.
