Eagle, Central Spain

I have this identified as Spanish imperial eagle juvenile in the field yesterday, however examination of the photos taken left me a doubt regarding the possibility of Bonelli juvenile because of dark crescent of underwing primary coverts shown in Svensson guide. Back home consultation of Forsman book descriptions and photos reassures me in my first opinion, but I would like yours, as in this area imperial is now beginning to appear. In fact if ID is ok I saw in a very short distance all three big eagle species: a pair of adults Bonellis, a golden adult and this one
