Interesting thread about SCW…

"I had the feeling that the state of Spanish Military Aviation in July 1936 did not allow any decision-making action, but reading Luis Romero's 3 Days of July (I should have read it years ago, I did not do it because of prejudice and now the work has surprised me: a huge and excellently written work, not inferior to the acclaimed work of Dominique Lapierre and Larry Collins) it seems that the actions of the Cuatro Vientos Aviation were very important in determining the fate of the rebels in the Mountain Barracks (Not so much for the material damages, but for the moral effects, both among the besieged and among their possible supports within Madrid). And it seems that the commander of Cuatro Vientos did not force his men to fly and allowed those in favor of the rebellion to go home.

Something similar, although on a smaller scale, seems to have happened in El Pratt with respect to Barcelona (with confusing episodes, such as Goded disembarking at the air naval base without problems when, afterwards, a large part of the nucleus of most notable Republican airmen was to leave, I suppose. that the confusion of those chaotic days did not allow them to realize what was actually happening)…."
