A formation of three Brewster Buffalo fighter planes(all of the B-239 version) of the Finnish Air Force flying into combat during the Continuation War(fought between Finland and the Soviet Union from June of 1941 to September of 1944 during WWII).
While the Buffalo fighter plane was widely regarded by most of its various national operators as being a type of slow and obsolete fighter aircraft for its time(like the Netherlands and the UK),Finland proved such a popular belief otherwise as it was the only country that operated the American-made Buffalo fighter aircraft with great success.Finland's small fleet of 44 Buffalo fighter planes took part in both the Continuation War and the Lapland War(which also took place in WWII,although it was now fought between Finland and Nazi Germany(a former Finnish ally) from November of 1944 to April of 1945) and saw much successful action in both wars,with many Soviet and Nazi German aircraft being shot down by brave and determined Finnish pilots flying the "Flying Coffin",which was one of many grim nicknames for the old-fashioned Brewster Buffalo.
Two famed and well-known fighter pilots of the Finnish Air Force who achieved great successes while flying the "Flying Coffin" in combat are Captain Hans Wind(with 39 "kills") and Sergeant Major Ilmari Juutilainen(with 34 "kills").Both men were also two of the best fighter pilots of the Finnish Air Force during the Second World War,with the former gaining a total of 75 aerial victories while the latter attained a confirmed total of 94 aerial victories(although he himself claimed that he actually had 126 rather than 94). #brewsterbuffalo #fighterplane #usa #finnishairforce #continuationwar #laplandwar #hanswind #ilmarijuutilainen

Todellinen pala historiaa. Kaksinkertaisen lentäjä-ässä Hans Windin koneen peräsimen osa. Valokuvan oton jälkeen tullut vielä muutama pudotusviiva lisää.

Group Captain Sir Douglas Robert Steuart Bader /ˈbɑːdər/ CBE, DSO & Bar, DFC & Bar, FRAeS, DL (21 February 1910 – 5 September 1982) was a Royal Air Force (RAF) fighter ace during the Second World War. He was credited with 20 aerial victories, four shared victories, six probables, one shared probable and 11 enemy aircraft damaged. ----- Jukka Pekka Wind, son of Finnish fighter ace Hans Wind, was born on the 24th of January 1955. Hans was a big fan of Bader so he decided to write to him. Hans introduced himself in a letter and asked Bader, if he could become a godfather of Jukka Pekka. Bader accepted the request. .D #finnish#airforce#wind#wwii#ww2#worldwarii#worldwar2#weltkrieg2#ussr#soviet#british#hanswind#RAF#ace#friendship#royalairforce

The Brewster bad ass. Finnish flying ace Hans Wind (75 victories), seen here next to his Brewster B-239 Buffalo. #worldwar2 #finnishairforce #mannerheimcross #ace #b239 #hanswind #badass #1943 #bf109

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).
