Pilsen-Bory, August 1952
The aircraft was assigned to the Air Regiment
No. 8 located in Brno on March 28, 1949. There, rtn.
(sergeant) František Bauer collided with another aircraft (S-199.97) during taxiing, but the aircraft suffered no damage. But the aircraft did not avoid damage
finally, as it was crashed on September 15, 1949, by
rtn. Josef Jiroušek. The causation of the crash remains unclear. The airframe was repaired, and the
engine overhauled. After that, the aircraft was assigned to the 18 Fighter Air Regiment, where it was
assigned to the 3rd Squadron and received the fuselage code EX-57. On August 14, 1952, it was damaged
on landing. After the crash, it was painted a darker
green color as part of the repairs, but the fuselage
code remained the same.

This aircraft was flown by rtn. (sergeant) Jiljí Horák
when it was forced to an emergency landing near
Červený Hrádek town on February 25, 1950. At the
time of the incident, the aircraft bore numerous signs of wear and tear and repairs, the most visible of
which were the replacements of some metal parts
of the fuselage left in bare-metal. There were also
several areas of peeling paint on the aircraft. After
the emergency landing, the airframe went in for repairs and the engine for inspection. However, in Ku-
novice factory, where the repair was carried out, the
aircraft suffered another unspecified crash and had
to be repaired again. It was then handed over to the
next user, the 4 Air Training Regiment.
