Following the end of the second world war, as the state of Israel was formed - Jewish volunteers from around the world flocked to Israel to see to it that the state was formed & secured in every way. Pilots with experience earned in the skies over Europe and the Pacific both found themselves in the seat of Czech-built Messerschmitt Bf-109s, powered by sketchy-at-best engines originally destined for bombers.

In the ultimate irony - perhaps the most famous firebrand of Hitler's Luftwaffe became the sword of the Jewish state - against Egyptian Spitfires over the contested skies of the mid-east.

Based on reference photography of an IAF 101st Bf-109G(6??) in livery for aircraft #112, Israel, 1947
