Biplane fighter aces


Francisco Alférez Jiménez

In December 1938, Francisco Alférez Jiménez served in the 4a/26, which was equipped with the Polikarpov I-15.

On 30 December, he claimed a CR.32.

It seems that he moved to the 1a/26 (I-15) around New Year 1938-1939.

On 21 January, he claimed a Ju 87 while reportedly serving in the 1a/26 (I-15).

Alférez ended the Spanish Civil War with 2 biplane victories.
It is also possible that this is two different persons.
