The dark green camouflaged S-199.185 with white code IF-01, originally belonging to 1st Squadron of 51. lp (51st Air Regiment) in Pilsen. There are clear gaps left by “bridges”

of the template in the lines of individual letters and numbers.

An emergency landing of Avia S-199.47 from the 2nd flight of the 18th Air Squadron in Plzeň which took place in Dobřany shooting range area on April 23, 1952. Rather weathered

look of the BS-35 fuselage code is in contrast with glaring white of the national insignia. The code was sprayed through a stencil. The aircraft was painted gray green overall.
