Movie (1988)
Russian title : Пилоты

Petr Stepánek (Jan Trejbal)
Karel Greif (2nd Lt. Jandák)
Peter Rúfus (Karol Halaj)

Story of a Czechoslovak pilot who fled his overran country to fight in France, then in United Kingdom before ending among a Czech unit of the Soviet VVS.

Messerschmitt Bf 109 (R/C models)

Several actions throughout this movie are based on radio-command models used both to simulate germans and russian aircrafts. For example, like this Messerschmitt Bf 109.

Later a more detailed model with firing guns.

Avia S-199

This czech post-war derivative is seen only on static display, acting as a Messerschmitt Bf 109.

Lisunov Li-2

Ilyushin Il-14

As the Lisounov is quite rare in 1988, flights are made by this aircraft in place of its forerunner.

Focke-Wulf Fw 190

Several (?) radio-command models are used during the dogfights.

At the climax, duels show even the german pilot. First during the Battle of Britain (please, note that the Fw 190 has a canopy not splited by such a structural reinforcement).

By the way, the Pik-As was the Jagdgeschwader 53 which never used the Fw 190; but this canopy is no more this of a Messerschmitt Bf 109 !
During the last dogfight of the movie, on the eastern front, the same set is slighty updated.

Pilots 190c1.png

Like the Bf 109 before, a detailed model shows the muzzle firing.

Lavochkin La-7

It's written on the cowling ! Probably a radio-command model.

Yakovlev Yak-18

But most of the shots display Lavochkin fighters on the ground, with an engine cowling similar to the Lavochkin La-11.

Pilots La-11 mock.png
Pilots La-11 mock2.png

When taxiing, these planes wave dangerously, the wingtip leveling the ground !

Pilots La-11 troika.png

By the way, where did the landing gear retract under this wing ? Backwards, like the first Yakovlev Yak-18 ! But the engine is the Ivchenko AI-14 of the later ones.
