One of ten Messerschmitts Me-262 Schwalbe built in Czechoslovakia after WWII. It got new name - Avia S-92. This plane was given to Kbely museum in 1980 and nicely restored to the state you can see now.

As a fan of military aircraft, this is my first hearing of the Avia S-92. Was the pefromance better than the German models? Were there any upgrades? Ws it in service very long? It's hard to believe the Russians did not simply build a copy, instead opting for the awkward Yak 15 with a German Jumo 004 grafted into it at an angle. Don Shively firstname.lastname@example.org

In a quick search I found that after WWII there was no Me-262 capable of flying left, but some parts of aircraft were saved. It was possible to build new aircraft from these parts. According to military.cz website 9 single-seaters S-92 (Me-262A) and 3 twin-seaters CS-92 (Me-262B) had been built. They were in service in 1948-1951.
