10 July 1941. Lt. "Joppe" Karhunen gives orders to his pilots in front of a Brewster B-239 fighter. The Finnish Air Force used a blue swastika since 1918, well before the Nazis adopted the symbol. Finland ordered 44 Brewsters from the United States, using them with great effectiveness in the Continuation War. Karhunen scored 25.5 of his 31.5 kills using this aircraft. His 24th Squadron had a victory ratio of 26:1, with 477 Red aircraft destroyed with a loss of only 19 Brewsters.

Legendaren Harry Järv rustad för ett patrulluppdrag bakom fiendens linjer. Foto Harry Järv / Den som sade att krigen Finland - Sovjetunionen slutade oavgjort  var patrulledaren Järv.
