    That's a beauty! I know that there was one supposedly being restored here in the States that had been recovered from Russia but It's nice that one is staying where she was used!

    If I'm not wrong, she's being restored in Tikkakoski Air Museum Finland.
    Here's some more information:

    and video from the museum, in Finnish only but condition is clearly seen.

    virtualpilots.fi: Uutiset.

    I'm sad to hear(from video) that fuselage was already a bit damaged in some phase of wreck transportation. Also, guy there tells that the dooming hit was into an oil pipe.
    Brewsters were ordered, and finalized in Sweden but did not participate to Winter War. Finnish front line equipment remained Fokker D.XXI, Gloster Gladiators and Blenheim MkI. Brewsters got into front line in Continuation War.
