What is this plane? I've looked all over and I can't seam to find anything close to it. I'm asking what the german one is?
Thats a still taken from the Battle of Britain film. As mosquitoman a Spanish Buchon which was a licensed version of the 109.
thank you I figured that it was a copy or as close as hollywood could get to the BF-109
The mass shots were shot over Spain mostly.
They took 2 Heinkels and 5 Hispanos Buchon 109s to England for the rest of the filming.

Just to illustrate how the side profile of the Heinkel He 111 changed with Merlins to create the CASA C-2111D.The D was the bomber version while the E was the troop-carrier version.

Another aircraft utilised for the movie was the Percival Prentice. Four of them were dressed up to represent half-scale Stukas, complete with cranked wings.
