View Full Version : OT: Finnish Vampires, Saab Safirs, Fouga Magisters and Gnats on tape

These two films were filmed in 1962 when RAF had already removed the Vampires from active service. Finns other hand used the Vampires from 1953 to 1965. Also Folland Gnats can be seen. The film was shot at Finnish Air Force base at Pori.

The first film is about fighter pilot training with Saab Safirs ("Lentäjäksi"). The second film ("Hävittäjät") is the one with fighters. To skip the parts about Fougas, start from 10:00.

That's a sleek little trainer. It'd look good in my backyard, except it's wings would be hanging in my neighbor's yards. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

And to top it off I had to go to hospital and have my tongue put into traction for trying to pronounce "Havittajat" out loud. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
