Virtuaalilentäjät / Virtual Pilots Finland R.y. Registered Society
Easter Meeting 2001

Easter of the year 2001 was a unforgettable experience for many Finnish virtual pilots from the WarBirds and Aces High community. Virtuaalilentäjät r.y. society arranged a easter meeting at the Finnish Aviation Museum and we had the honour of having three pilot veterans with us as well. Especially fantastic was to listen to the lecture given by mr. Väinö Pokela, Brewster & Me 109 ace, who told us about their squadron's days in eastern Karelia and in the front lines. Many said that it was the best easter ever they had experienced.
