enter image description here Found this CD I had in 1997 and just bought it again as it got lost.

There is an aircraft which I cannot identify:

  • the sticker on the propeller leads to a propeller manifacturer called Avia
  • guess its a double engine plane with retractable landing gears
  • the picture on the CDs are invertet so I inverted the colors
  • guess it's a combustion engine, not a jet
  • the vent slots are pretty similar to Zlin planes but could not find a model which fits to the pictures

Solved: it's an Let L-200 Morava, thanks for your answers!

    $\begingroup$ Is it possible you can adjust the first picture so that it is not upside down? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @RonBeyer I get the feeling the image is fine as it is and the engine was upside down in the original. $\endgroup$ Commented May 30, 2019 at 15:27

    $\begingroup$ @FreeMan His user name says Austrian pilot, not Australian. :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ By the way @AustrianPilot, I think maybe you mean to say "piston engine" rather than "combustion engine." Jet engines are also combustion engines. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I was just going to suggest a hint that AVIA is a Czech company. And someone has already traced the whole thing down! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I like how convenient this plane is. When parking in a hangar you can just ram it into the back wall and the front tire will stop you. What a time saver! $\endgroup$
