Finnish ace Hans "Hasse" Wind, looking pretty dapper in front of the tail end of his Brewster B239 (imported F2A Buffalo). He scored a total of 75 confirmed aerial victories against the Soviets, more than half of them in the American made Brewster until 1943. He then claimed another 36 victories when his unit converted to the Messerschmitt Bf 109G. In the middle of 1944 his combat career would end, when a Soviet flown P-39 pierced his 109s fuselage with 37mm shells, badly wounding his arm. He still managed to land the damaged aircraft with his injury back at base. He finished his career with 302 combat sorties and is ranked second on the Finnish ace list under Ilmari Juutilainen (the top non-German ace).
