Finnish Blenheim in the woods

Finnish Blenheim in the woods

Back to the story

G1943. The Blenheim proved to be a good seller and many air forces bought examples. The aircraft was very reliable and so were the engines and this was important in the cold climate of Finland. Note the markings, this is not a German aircraft, the Swastika is in fact in blue.

Shades of things to come with the aircraft hidden under trees, a method adopted by Harriers in later years.
