Dear Friends:

Two short years ago we created this message box on our home page, asking for your help to keep this site up and running. In that time, many of you have generously donated to our PayPal account and we are forever grateful. With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we continue to ask for donations to keep this site up and running. If you're still enjoying this website and would like to help us continue being the BEST site on the Internet for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Avia CS-199 seen in Brána do historie (Episode 102 Stíhači).

The Czechoslovak manufacturer Avia was seized by German in March 1939 and used to manufacture their aircraft ending the line with Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6s. Once the Third Czechoslovak Republic emerged in 1945, the need to build an Air Force from nothing led to do with what was on site : airframes and engines let by retreating German troops. Avia re-birth was the fruit of these spread part assembly : the S-99 (a Messerschmitt Bf 109 G with its DB605 engine). Only forty airframes left the factory before the lack of the DB605 powerplant. Thus leading Avia to use in 1947 another stock of available engine : the Junkers Jumo 211F (mostly used on Heinkel HE 111 H-11 and later variants). The airframe lost some speed and the axial cannon. The new aircraft was used by Czechoslovakia (for ten years) and Israel (phased out in 1950).

603 Avia S-199 were built before the assembly line was closed in 1949.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Avia S-199 and the two-seat training CS-199.
