Re: Loss off Airspeed Envoy piloted by Leopold Galy in 1937

The best candidate to claim this "air victory" would be the Nationalist fighter unit located nearest to the place where attack happened. To find it out requires some work but I believe that there are people with knowledge to be found from forums related to Spanish Civil War.

I looked upon my books and I could not find a Italian Chirri unit or Legion Condor unit to be credited with this one.

It may be extremely difficult to find a claimer for this air victory. No one likes to confess to have shot down a civilian plane and it does not make good for propaganda image.

A wild idea: did they really identify the attacking fighters to have Nationalist markings without any doubt?

Hi Leendert,

Do you have any details of the crew and their fate?

Nick
