Response to De Havilland 90
I'm not a professional, but many of these negatives show aircraft in the repainting process after capture, such as SB-2, R-Z, I-15, GP-2, so the most probable explanation for that pic of the Dragonfly is that it was taken shortly after capture. Several DH-90 served as trainers in the multi-engine school of Totana, that was occupied by Nationalists in 1939.
This particular plane could be F-AQEU by the registration on fuselage. Howson says that it was re-registered with this name after its purchase in France, in May 1938. Previously it was the G-AEBU.
