Wow!
F19 vs, got any more info on this?
Edit: Or any one else?
Second linked article refers to "crew members" which suggests a multiple crew plane... like Hawker Hart.
Any Hart not accounted for in F19?

very interesting, Thank you.

It doesn't say much about what type, sure, could definately be a F19 Hawker Hart or Gloster Gladiator

let's wait and see what more will be revealed!

F 19, the Swedish unit in Finland during the Winter War.

During the 62 days there were flight operations on 60 days and on the average eight aircraft were airborne per day so the maintenance personnel did a pretty good job. 600 hours were flown, which means 10 hrs per flying day.

Victories: Ensign Iacobi one I-15, Salwén one I-15 and SB-2, Frykholm and Steninger together one SB-2, Tehler two SB-2s, Karlsson one TB-3 and Martin one I-15. Four enemy aircraft were destroyed on ground.

Losses: six aircraft, three Harts and three Gladiators. One of each type was shot down. Personnel losses: Ensign John Magnus Sjökvist, Lt. Sten Åke Hildinger, Lt. Anders Robert Zachau. Taken prisoner: Lt. Sterner and ensign Jung (returned to Sweden after 5 months).

Hello from Finland!

Yes, this must be Gladiator (J8A, three lost) or Hawker Hart (three lost). The news says that the group are trying to contact the Swedish authorities which is bit strange since the crashed planes were sold to Finnish goverment after the war. Also all military equipment on Finnish soil belongs to the Goverment of Finland.

Perhaps human remains will be found and than surely the Swedish government should know about it....

Don't think so. If my memory serves me right all bodies were counted and transferred to Sweden after the war and this wreck was forgotten during all these years.

- John Sjökvist's Gladiator.
- Only small parts were found and rags from blue jumper.
- The aeroplane crashed near Salla.
