HISTORY

  • The Hispano HA-200 Saeta (meaning “arrow” in English) was a two-seat, jet trainer used primarily by the Spanish Air Force. Its design can be attributed largely to Willy Messerschmitt, who, after WWII emigrated to Spain and began designing aircraft for the Spanish government in union with the manufacturer Hispano Aviacion. The HA-200 program was directed by Willy Messerschmitt and in 1955, a prototype flew for the first time, spawning the Spanish aviation industry. The HA-200 was Spain’s first jet-type aircraft. 
  • Later developments included the HA-220 model, a ground attack aircraft, which was exported to countries like Egypt, who already used HA-200 trainer models. In 1974, HA-200/220 was used in combat during the Polisario insurrections in Morocco where it successfully delivered rocket attacks.
