Aviation Museum of Central Finland / Museo de la Aviación de Finlandia Central / Musée de l’aviation de la Finlande Centrale / Museu da Aviação da Finlândia central

In English:

This museum is situated in Tikkakoski very near to the town called Jyväskylä. The distance to Tikkakoski from Helsinki is 278km / 173mi. and the distance between Jyväskylä and Tikkakoski is 21km / 13mi. The museum presents many “cold war” air crafts, crew equipment and engines.

My post shows 29 different aircrafts, but the most important photos to me personally are 16 photos presenting the only one and unique Brewster BW372 in the world. It is known better as Brewster F2A Buffalo. Finland bought from the United States 44 F2A-1s. With these fighters the Finnish war pilots gained 447 air victories for 19 losses. Ration to victories was 32:1 and that is much in the whole world.

This Brewster BW372 was shot down in June 25th, 1942. The pilot called Lauri Pekuri had to make an emergency landing in the lake Big Kolejärvi in Russia. In 1998 it was recovered from the lake badly damaged. After that it was transferred to Pensacola in August 18th, 2004 and the Finns promised to restore it to that condition when it was when lifted from the lake Big Kolejärvi. Now this unique fighter can be admired in Tikkakoski in the Aviation Museum of Central Finland.

It is on loan from the Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, Fl. According to the newest info, Brewster BW372 is returning to Pensacola in 2018. The last photo is SA-kuva from our war archives which everyone can use. Link to archive page:

The blogger Plane Dave has presented the history of the Brewster Buffalo and Brewster BW 372 thoroughly using my photos with my permission. I sincerely recommend his post for more information.

En español:

Este museo está situado en Tikkakoski muy cerca del pueblo llamado Jyväskylä. La distancia a Tikkakoski de Helsinki es 278 kilómetros / 173mi. y la distancia entre Jyväskylä y Tikkakoski está a 21 kilometros / 13millas. El museo presenta muchas artesanías de aire “guerra fría”, equipo de la tripulación y de los motores.

Mi mensaje muestra 29 aviones diferentes, pero las fotos más importantes para mí en lo personal son 16 fotos que presentan el único Brewster BW372 en el mundo. Brewster BW372 se conoce mejor como Brewster F2A Buffalo. Finlandia compró 44 Brewster F2A-1 Buffalos de los Estados Unidos. Con estos aviones los combatientes de pilotos de guerra finlandeses obtuvieron 447 victorias de aire para 19 derrotas. Ración de victorias fue de 32: 1 y que es excelente en el mundo entero.

Esta Brewster BW372 fue derribado el 25 de junio de 1942 El piloto llamado Lauri Pekuri tuvo que hacer un aterrizaje de emergencia en el lago de Big Kolejärvi en Rusia. En 1998 se recuperó el avion muy dañada en un lago. Después de que fue trasladado a Pensacola en 18 de agosto 2004 y los finlandeses se comprometió a restaurarla al mismo estado en que estaba en el lago cuando se levanta del lago de Big Kolejärvi. Ahora bien, hoy se puede admirar este avión de guerra único en Tikkakoski en el Museo de la Aviación de Finlandia Central.

Es cedida por el Museo de la Aviación Naval en Pensacola, Florida. De acuerdo con la última información, Brewster BW372 está volviendo a Pensacola en 2018. La última foto es SA-kuva de nuestros archivos de guerra que todo el mundo puede utilizar. Enlace a la página de archivo:

En francais:

Ce musée est situé près du village Tikkakoski appelé Jyväskylä. La distance Tikkakoski Helsinki est de 278 km / 173 miles et la distance entre Jyväskylä et Tikkakoski est de 21 km / 13miles. Le musée possède de nombreux métiers de l’air “guerre froide”, l’équipage et les moteurs de l’équipement.

Mon message presente 29 aéronefs différents, mais le plus important pour moi personnellement 16 photos sont des photos qui montrent le seul Brewster BW372 dans le monde. Brewster BW372 est mieux appelé Brewster F2A Buffalo. Finlande a acheté 44 Brewster F2A-1 Buffalo des États-Unis. Avec ces avions de chasse les pilotes de guerre finlandaises ont obtenus 447 victoires aériennes contre 19 défaites. Le ratio de victoire qui est de 32: 1 est excellent dans le monde.

Cette Brewster BW372 a été abattu le 25 Juin 1942. Le pilote a appelé Pekuri Lauri a dû faire un atterrissage d’urgence à Big Lake Kolejärvi en Russie. En 1998, l’avion gravement endommagé dans un lac récupéré. Après il a été transféré à Pensacola le 18 Août 2004 et les Finlandais s’est engagé à restaurer à cet état, elle était où elle se trouvait en montant, dans le lac Kolejärvi Big Lake. Maintenant, aujourd’hui, vous pouvez admirer cet avion unique guerre Tikkakoski en Musée de l’aviation du centre de la Finlande.

Elle est prêtée par le musée de l’aéronavale de Pensacola, en Floride. Selon les dernières informations, Brewster BW372 est de retour à Pensacola en 2018 La dernière photo est de notre guerre SA-kuva fichiers que tout le monde peut utiliser. Lien vers la page archive:

Em Português:

Este museu está situado perto da aldeia chamada Tikkakoski, Jyväskylä. A distância entre Tikkakoski e Helsinki é 278 km / 173 milhas e a distância entre Jyväskylä e Tikkakoski é de 21 km / 13millas. O museu presenta avions de “guerra fria”, o equipamentos de tripulação e motores.

Minha mensagem apresenta 29 diferentes aeronaves, mas o mais importante para mim pessoalmente, são as 16 fotos fotos mostrando o único Brewster BW372 em todo o mundo. BW372 Brewster é mais conhecido como F2A Buffalo. Finlândia comprou 44 Brewster F2A-1 Buffalo de Estados Unidos. Com esses caça de guerra os pilotos finlandês tem 447 vitórias aéreas contra 19 derrotas. A relação de vitória é de 32: 1 é bom no mundo.

Este BW372 Brewster foi abatido em 25 de junho de 1942 O piloto chamado Pekuri Lauri teve que fazer um pouso de emergência em Big Lake Kolejärvi Rússia. Em 1998, a aeronave foi recuperado severamente danificado em um lago. Depois ele foi transferido para Pensacola 18 de agosto de 2004 e os finlandeses prometeu restaurar a misma condição quando foi levantado do lago Big Kolejärvi. Agora, hoje se pode admirar esta aeronave único de guerra no Museu da Aviação do centro da Finlândia em Tikkakoski.

É por empréstimo do Museu da Aviação Naval, em Pensacola, Florida. De acordo com relatórios recentes, Brewster BW372 está de volta em Pensacola em 2018. A última foto é a nossas arquivos da photographia de guerra – “SA kuva” todos nós podemos usar. A hiperligação para a página de arquivo:

      • Hi again! I checked out the link … Very interesting symbolism… It seems it is a universal symbol somehow… I knew that ancient romans had used iot, but not that it was common among so many different cultures..
        As to Finland … I found online the following information: “From 1939 to 1945 three conflicts the Finns recognize as the Winter War (against an invading Soviet Union), the Continuation War (striking against the Soviets alongside the Germans) and the Lapland War (against the Germans for control of Lapland)…
        Which means that Finland fight alongside the germans in one occasion and against them in other. [Source: The Atlantic. com]
        Those were difficult times and even France and Italy (I have italian roots) were allies of the nazis…. Lots of mazis came to live to Argentina (my country) after they War was over… So… All was part of a Terrible war, hard to understand it.
        All the best to you and thanks for providing new knowledge, dear sartenada!!! Aquileana😀

          Memorials.

          Everywhere in our country we have gorgeous memorials erected for war veterans.

          This post includes small info about our history.

          P.S. I forgot to say, that I was born during the war. Once a bomb exploded very near to our home in Helsinki and if my late mother being pregnant, when the anti-aircraft sirens howled a warning of bombers attack, would not gone to the nearest bomb shelter, I should never wrote these words and You never had hear about me!!!

    • somewhat interestingly enough, our local museum (many years ago) displayed a big stone carved wall — with a swastica which was a Zuni (i think) Indian symbol. (now they’ve got that object hidden away — ah, “political correctness”)

  6. The aircraft and their histories is fascinating, and sobering to think of everything they and their pilots and crews went through in their periods of time. The museum is a magnificent structure. I would certainly enjoy spending many days there. Thank you for your excellent photographic display of it!

    Sarebbe bello che questi musei facessero capire quanto sono orribili le guerre, ma pare che gli umani non vogliano proprio capirlo!!

      Thank You for Your kind comment. Nowadays every air craft is full of high-tech Instruments, but at those days man must fly himself – visually.

  15. Quite interesting to have such a close look to these type of aircraft. I think they did a rather good job with the Brewster BW 372 (How they restored it).

    Now, Matti, I’m pleased that you took the chance on your road trip to stop at your aviation museum and to take photos of this particular plane – as sadly – as a loan- it will have to be returned to the Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, Fl. in 2016. Thanks for showing and telling the story of the Brewster and for your addional links!

    Happy Easter!

      Thank You commenting so kindly. Few years ago there was presented in our television a documentary of this Brewster. It had great impact to me. Our road trip last summer was short, only 1410 kilometers / 876 miles, but I got nice selection of photos which I’ll present later this year.

      Happy Easter to You also!

      Finnish Air Forces used Swastika from 1918, ours stands on one leg, to identify it easily.

  19. These airplanes are really works of art, so beautiful.I went to the museum of transportation in Glasgow, Scotland and although they didn’t have airplanes, your photos made me think of the museum as they had trains and cars, etc.

    • Hi Letizia.

      Thank You. I love museums, because they tell nice stories how the development of industry has passed thru years. At Helsinki airport there is another aviation museum which has mainly civil air planes. It is “popular” among people has not time to visit Helsinki, but want to see something while staying at airport.

      I wish a happy Sunday to You.

  22. They have certainly crammed a lot of planes into your local aviation museum, Matti. Great photos, and I read the history on the blog you linked to too. Great that you got to see it before it returns to Florida next year.
