HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT: Focke-Wulf FW 200C-3/U4 (F8+GH) of 1./KG 40 based Bordeaux-Merignac, France sits on Greek Airfield INTERNED: During WWII several FW 200's made emergency landings in Spain. At first the aircraft were repaired and returned to their bases in France. However, different sources reported that under political pressure, the Spanish Government started to intern all military equipment that arrived on Spanish soil, but allowed the crews to return to France the aircraft left in Spain, couldn't be used again. HOW MUCH, I'LL BUY IT: The Germans later sold the aircraft to the Spanish, even though, the aircraft were now interned and grounded. One was operated by the Spanish Air Force, while the others were used as a source for spare parts. Due to damage, lack of spares and political reasons the survivors were grounded and scrapped around 1950.
