But this one is really going back to the early days of aviation, only surviving original one in the world too, i present :
Caudron G.3





Sorry, no better pics because the Hangar the plane is in is quite cramped.... but more info of the aircraft is here:

en.wikipedia.org...

Imho, this is the kind of aircraft that pioneered the way towards we are now on aviation, fabrick,strings,wood,engine and few brawe men who took of with it

The bottom two should be some variant of the DeHavilland Vampire if I am not mistaken?!

Beautiful airplanes indeed.

Btw, the top one should be the 1950 Eiriavion PIK-3A Kanttikolmonen, OH-YKA.

Just discovered a list of the aircraft the museum you visited has in store. Would love to visit someday.

Made any pictures of the FM-42, Fouga CM-170 Magister by any chance? Would love to see them.

Thanks for all for your kind words and
This ones for pronto especially

VL Pyörremyrsky (loosely translated Taifun or whirlwind) Finnish design fighter that flew test flights at the end of WWII
never got to production and there was 2 of these prototypes, this one is the only surviving.









G, day mate great snaps of a really neat looking bird I can see design hints from british german and italian
thankyou
a glue problem interesting
it may be on youtube I dont know see if you can find the story of the ausse buit mossie and you may find the story of the cac 5 I think it was called very interesting



More history of the plane:
Engine was the same as in ME-109 Daimler-Benz DB 605A-1
Top speed 620 km/h at 6 400 meters
522 km/h at sea level
Wing span : 10,38 m
Wing area : 19 m²
Height : 3,89 m
Length : 9,13 m
Empty weight : 2 736 kg
Gross weight : 3 307 kg
The rate on increase: 21 m/s 2000 meters, 16 m/s at sea level
The time to get from 0 to 5 000 meters 4,5 minutes

Ceiling : 11 250 m
Range : 700 km with internal tanks only

Armanent: 1 x 20 mm MG 151 Cannon with 150 rounds
2 x 12,7 mm LKK/42-Machineguns
4 x 50-100 kg bombs

It was regarded as a pleasant aircraft to fly by the test pilots but it never went in to production because war was over and as it had most of its construction made out of wood there were problems with adhesives etc...

The wing profile was later used in Valmet Vihuri training aircraft , but thats another story

Thank you very much zoomer.

Do they have any idea what brought that Brewster down? I didn't see any obvious battle damage in those photos, just landing and water damage mostly. But yes thank you very much for those photos.

I've done some reading about Saburo Sakai-san. He was really a hero for his country. I'll look for the book.
