That would have been a 10.6.4 flavour most likely?
Grey Snow Leo DVDs may be hard to find, sadly.
Installing Mountain Lion, for example, is not an option for you?

You sure did this for the MBP: https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Apple-MacBook-Snow-Leopard-OS-X-Install-DVD...
Many grey DVDs could be hacked to install on other hardware, but there is no guarantee.

The thing is that I have a ton of PPC software and that Snow Leopard is the only os that doesn't slow down my Mac (Believe me I've tried other versions of macOS) and I'm not sure how I would put 2 disks on 1 usb and none of my stores in my area sell burnable cds because there too ''old" and I would prefer to have it on a usb

My Girlfriend owns this exact Macbook Air. Im confident that I will find the little USB Stick that came with the Air. I will look into tomorrow and let you know but Im sure its there.
How should I make an Image of this Snow Leopard stick ? My idea would be just OSX disk utility.

yeah just use disk utility the reason why i use such a outdated OS isn't just because of the speed but its the only OS that i really use for PPC apps and games because its the newest i don't have a credit card so i don't really look on eBay or amazon that much i mostly pick up stuff at e waste places (such as this Macbook Air)

What I've done for my SL installs is add an 8GB partition to the drive and restore the generic install DVD to it, and then fill up the extra space with the other installers etc. that I would need to set up a system from scratch.

This way I can use the second partition to repair the first, plus wipe and re-install in case of catastrophic failure.

The only thing this doesn't protect against is drive failure -- for that I restore my image to a USB stick temporarily, then restore the stick to the 8GB partition and go from there.
