An example of the dark green painted aircraft (S-199.180) featuring the white UF-21 fuselage codes and non-standard blue outline of the national insignias. This aircraft was written
off after the crash of pilot student Bohuslav Solta from the 4th Aviation School in Prostejov-Stichovice on May 30, 1953.
Crop of the well-known photograph of the
apron with S-199 and C-2 aircraft from the
18th Fighter Squadron in Pardubice, spring
1954. The dark painted aircraft in the middle is EX-58 belonging to the 3rd section
of the 3rd flight (initially this was a photo
reconnaissance aircraft). In this photograph we can compare the light gray-green
finish of the older aircraft with the newer
(or overhauled) aircraft sprayed with dark
green color. In both cases the fuselage
codes are white and the national insignia
feature a blue outline.
S-199.458 (manufactured by Aero) flown by Lt. Zdenek Štefl grounded after the mid-air collision with another „onehundredninetynine“ in the area of Letkov village on July 15, 1952. The
aircraft belonged to the 2nd Flight of the 51st Fighter Squadron in Pilsen. The scarlet code B-0235 indicates the previous owner, the National Security Aviation (disbanded on December 23, 1950). The Czechoslovak insignia with the standard 15mm white outline are painted in accordance with the 2nd Order of the National Markings Application dated October 1947.
