Hello all!

Just wanted to inform that again one huge project has been almost completed. The project makes use of the free satellite mapping program Google Earth, provided freely by the Google corporation.

The project was to catalog all airfields used by Finnish Air Force during the wars between 1939-1945, namely the Winter War, Continuation War and Lappland War.

The Wartime Airfields project also includes airfield data about ice fields, airfields used during the temporary peace 1940-1941, airfields used by Swedish volunteer unit F.19 during Winter War, airfields used by Germans and Soviet airfields.

Together we have now circa 170 airfields with almost 100 % accurate coordinates. However we still miss some airfields, mainly Soviet, so if you happend to know any, please send an email or two.

Very impressive job- perhaps I should try that for KNIL airfields starting with Samarinda II.
