VL Pyörremyrsky photo gallery

This is really an gem. VL Pyörremyrsky is rather unique plane from late WWII when everything was in short supply here in Finland. So to keep our Air Forces up and running it was decided to design an cost effective fighter  to similar flight characteristics as Messerschmitt Bf 109G. Using wood materials. Using Bf 109G motor & propeller.

War ended and only one example of this plane was built. Second prototype was also proposed but that was cancelled before production. Only existing plane has been preserved at Keski-Suomen Ilmailumuseo (Aviation Museum of Central Finland) in excellent condition. VL comes from Valtion lentokonetehdas (= State Aircraft Factory) and Pyörremyrsky is Hurricane.

These pictures were taken by anonymous, great many thanks to allowing us to publish them here.

I am currently designing an 1:6 model of this plane.
