Eagle-eyed adler enthusiasts will easily spot the differences between this Buchon and a regular BF109. Used by the Spanish airforce until 1965, these Spanish built Messerschmitts were used in the (epic) 1969 film The Battle of Britain starring Michael Caine, Edward Fox and Christoper Plummer (among others). Having spent 40 years in a barn, the group of fighters have sold for £10 million so could find their way back to airshows soon! (Story via The Express)
