    Default Airplane canvases recently found during restoration works in Tampere Finland.

    Mostly from Finnish WW2 aircraft but also some Russian ones. I have to say I like the picture a lot . The finder (in the picture) will have them framed and put up on the same wall as he found them (I wonder if he asked his wife for permission?)

    Looks like it came from underneath the wing. Based on the surrounding light gray.

    Very nice pieces !!

    The place were they built the house apparently was close to a place were they fixed aircraft that had been hit or captured during WW2. Some guy probably thought the canvases would make for perfect insulation.

    I assume the yellow and green pieces are from the aircraft.

    I quite like the WWII Finnish color schemes: Green, Black, Yellow, White and Light Blue.
