Bristol Blenheim Mk 1
The Bristol Blenheim is a British light bomber aircraft designed and built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company that was used extensively in the first two years of the Second World War. It was adapted as an interim long-range and night fighter, pending the availability of the Beaufighter. It was one of the first British aircraft to have all-metal stressed-skin construction, retractable landing gear, flaps, a powered gun turret and variable-pitch propellers.
The Swastika symbol
It is important to understand that the sign of the early Finnish Air Force has nothing to do with Nazi Germany but the same origin roots. The blue swastika was the symbol of good fortune used by the Swedish ethnograph and later active national socialist Count Eric von Rosen
who, during the Finnish Civil War presented to the Finnish White Army its first aircraft on March 6th, 1918. The swastika was painted on the upper and under side of the wings of the Thulin Type D
he brought from Sweden. The sige was later adopted by the Finnish air Force to honor him. That has nothing to do with National Socialism whatsoever. Believe it or not.
That's for the history part. Now let's see if you can find the stash. It has been hidden right here:
