Spain. Hispano Aviación HA-200 Saeta
The Hispano Aviación HA-200 Saeta was a training reactor designed with the collaboration of Willi Messerschmitt. It was very simple, almost the same as the Triana piston engine trainer, but with two Turbomeca Marbore reactors on the nose (similar to the Yak-15). It was used by Spain and Egypt, which acquired ten HA-200B and built 63 Al Kahira. The D version could carry a weapon, and the Super Saeta HA-220E could carry more powerful fuselage changes and reactors. 25 HA-200E were converted to single-seaters and called HA-220. The HA-200D, HA-200E and HA-220 were heavily employed in combat in the Sahara, and although they were launched with SA-7 missiles, none were shot down. Several HA-200Bs and Al Kahira were destroyed in the Six Day War.
It was retired in 1981, but as it is a very simple reactor, a large number of them have been preserved or acquired by privates and are still flying today.
