They were called "Escuadron Guernica" by the press (Guernica Swarm - Guernica being the town that was brutally bombed by German planes on behalf of the Spanish fascists during the Spanish Civil War in the 1930's). The team disappeared in 1968, and are believed to have been killed by government agents.
