Flying an Avia S-199 (Czech-built version of the Me-109) for the Israeli's 101st Fighter Squadron, American Volunteer Rudy Augarten was patrolling between Majdal (Near Gaza) and Beersheba on 16 October 1948.  As he cruised just below 10,000 feet, he spotted a pair of Egyptian Spitfires a few thousand feet below, heading in the opposite direction.  A quick wingover and shallow dive put him behind the unsuspecting pilot of the rearmost Spitfire.  Closing in, he fired short burst, scoring hits on the Egyptian fighter,  Pouring smoke, the Spitfire went down to crash near a coastal sand dune.

Rudy Augarten went on to score three more victories in the Arab-Israeli War.  Adding the two Me-109s he shot down while flying P-47s with the 976 fighter Group in World War II.  He became one of the six Americans to achieve ace.
