NICO BRAAS COLLECTION
No. 4222. Hispano HA-100-E1 E.12 Triana
As after WW II the design and production of aircraft were prohibited
in Germany, several German aircraft designers/manufacturers looked
abroad for work in their specific professions. Willy Messerschmitt
opened an office in Spain, named "Officina Technica Prof.
Messerschmitt". In December 1951 Hispano Aviación SA and
Messerschmitt signed a contract covering the design and construction
of an operational piston-engined trainer (HA-100), an advanced
jet-trainer (HA-200), and a supersonic fighter (HA-300). On January
1, 1952, Professor Messerschmitt and his team started work at
Hispano, Seville, Spain.
