    The Israelis bought some czech made -109s in the 1948 War of Independance. It was only a few they bought on the black market and had shipped in crates. They tangoed with egyptian (90% certain) planes, I guess in this painting a spitfire.

    Pretty cool, but I wonder if those Czech Me-262 were better than the real one?

    I had read where the Czech 109's were not liked in service by the IAF.

    No, they weren't, because they weren't completely same Bf 109's - they were equipped with Jumo 211 engines (those used in He 111 bombers...), also there was quite a difference with the propeller, cabin, etc...

    The flight bahviour wasn't that great either, that is why they were called Mules (Mezek)...
