Räyskälä – Monday 18th June 2018 (John Tomlinson)

Another 1 hour drive and next up was Rayskala~Etela-Suomi, mainly a gliding airfield, however plenty of other fixed wings about the field and hangars to enjoy.

A warm welcome here with one member opening hangars for us and then taking the group to his own hangar at the far end of the field. He was keen to show us his own collection, which included a Valtion Viima II, Cessna 195 B and Yak 11. Very nice to see and take a closer inspection.


Noted between 1650-1800hrs and again in order as seen.
