Could anyone supply me with information about the wherabouts of Soviet and Finnish airbases during Winterwar, mainly on the Norhers front around Salla

I have of course the positions of F19s bases, but I lack Soviet bases positions around this area, and possibly Finnish ones (if any)

Funny to see such a small country whip Russia in WW2.

The map is from LLv 24 book which covers the winter war and continuation so i assume the airbases are from that time only, cannot be more specific

incidentally no.10 Utti was the first Finish airbase established in 1918

Thanx mate, I have.

It's really a great thing, unfortunately there is not much info on when these airbases up at Salla front were set up. The markers for F19 bases are very informative, bur for me nothing new. About the others, well if you click the markers we lack information about perid.. and it seems to me that the amount of Soviet bases should should me a little more.. maybe?

Still a good project which I might contribute to if/when I get more info on Soviet and Finnish bases..
