In 1942 the Government of Spain signed an agreement with the company "Messerschmitt" contract on licensed production aircraft Bf 109G-2, but finished planes began to leave the factory of "Hispano Aviacion» (Hispano Aviacion) in small quantities only 1945 year. The delay was related to the lack of a complete set of technical drawings and related accessories. The most important was the engine DB 605 company "Daimler-Benz", in which Germany was denied due to a general lack of power plants.

The Spaniards were forced to use a less powerful French-made HS 12Z 17 engine manufactured by Hispano Suiza and built the HA-69-K1112L aircraft around 1. The production of airframes soon exceeded the number of engines available, and starting from 1952, with the thawing of relations between the Spanish and Western governments, more powerful Merlin 500 / 45 engines from Rolls-Royce became available from the UK. Combining the former German glider aircraft with the engine of his honorable opponent of the war proved to be successful, and the first prototype aircraft "Buchon» (Buchyn - blue) with a few problems passed flight tests.

Aircraft "Buchon" remained in operation until the year 1965, 1968 and 23, the surviving aircraft were purchased by "Spitfire Productions» (Spitfire Production) for use in the film "The Battle of A-ngliyu."
