Below is a communication I received from the good people at the Western Canadian Air Museum. Looks like they do have some Luftwaffe interests. Other comms indicate not too much in the way of data, but a plane says a million words, doesn't it?

August 28, 2000

Hello Gordon:

Sorry for the delay in answering your e-mail of August 20, 2000. Blame
it on golf, etc.

We have on display here in our Museum "On Loan" from the National
Aviation Museum a Spanish version of the Luftwaffe BF 10G. It's called
a Hispano HA-1112 MIL Buchan. It doesn't have the original German
engines as there were none available, but it is powered by a Rolls-Royce
Merlin 500/45, 1600 h.p. v-12 engine.

We also have on display a pre WWII Junkers JV-52/IM used by Canadian
Airways in Winnipeg from 1931 to 1942. Also, we have several artifacts
such as helmets, instruments, books, and manuals in various condition.
Hope this helps in your research.

Best regards,

John Bonner
