Post by K4KittyCrew »

Ok, here is another challenge for you all.

You'll need to name the aircraft type and maker.
First correct answer gets the boiled lollies!
Good luck!

I think you'll find it's a captured aircraft in Finnish Air Force markings. Being honest, I got that it was Finnish and it was my lad who's knowledgeable about these things who immediately identified the type :D
