CASA C. 1-131E Series 2000

Here we have German classic, with a Spanish twist. G-BUCK is a very fine example of this Spanish-built, German-designed trainer, the equivalent of the DeH Tiger Moth. The Jungmann is a wonderful piece of aeronautical design, and demonstrated it’s longevity by being produced for the Spanish Air Force, and other users, long after the end of the war. This example previously wore a very attractive RLM Grau colour scheme, false Luftwaffe codes, and the ‘Grunherz’ symbol of JG54.
