    Excellent find. Didn't know the Spanish 109's had 4 props.

    The 'Buchon' normally had a four blade prop, but some of those in the movie, used in ground scenes, were fitted with a three blade prop, in an effort to maintain authenticity as far as possible.

    I agree. The scene where the '109s' strafe the 'French' airfield (south west corner of Duxford!) comes to mind !
