    amazing, how things look almost untoched since 1944-45, man i wish i lived in europe right now, would be great to go hunting for items at old battle sites,

    loved to see these crashed planes pop up once and awhile, from mother earth, i take it from the bones the crew perished in this crash. hopefully they were able to find the names and notify any family left.

    keep up the great work with the photos that you post dimas they are great.....

    Maybe this:

    Date is certainly the Winter War,
    time is changed to 12 hours by me:

    21.Dec 1939 2.30pm Kämärä Luutn(ltnt) Jaakko Vuorela FR-87 DB-3
    21.Dec 1939 2.30pm Kämärä Vänr(ensign) Joel Savonen FR-93 DB-3

    Not sure about Vänrikki, any Finns correct me?
    FR-number meant it was the Finnish primary fighter in Winter War Fokker D-XXI, or D-21, Fokker D.XXI - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The place sounds like it was 'Säiniö' near Viipuri ('Kämärä's there as well)
    Just having a guess in a case she was shot down by another aircraft.

    It's nice to see some of the artifacts cleaned up and on display.

    They always said there must be loads of planes in Russia and surrounding areas but I think they didn't realise that there were crashsites.
