Well done, Juha. :D

I guess I almost always give you a starting point to search for the answer to my questions, with a "Maple Leaf connection"!! :lol:

The Fleet Fort was the only WW2 aircraft designed and produced in Canada.
Although fixed, the undercarriage was fitted with a retractable fairing. This feature was intended to familiarize student pilots with an undercarriage retraction mechanism but without causing damage should the student forget.

Thanks, at first I thought it to be some DHC type (the rudder looked like a DH one), perhaps a radial engined Chipmunk variant. But no. Then I figured your pic was of a restored plane, and a museum search gave the name. :)

I have tried many times: either they are over-easy or -difficult :cry:

Hi Juha,

Son of the almost King of Finland Friedrich Karl? He at least served in Lappland and according to Dietl would have made an excellent king because he was so lazy.

Regards,

Jari

Correct!
Prince Philipp von Hessen, the "Crown Prince of Finland"
His Father was elected as King of Finland 9th Oct-18, but he refused to accept the crown 28th Dec-18.
The pic is from "Suomi Tahtoi Elää II" (Finland wanted to live) by Taavi Patoharju

Hi Aufklärung,

100 % accurate identification is of course not possible from the photo, but the artillery weapons expert that made the identification for a friend of mine did not suggest smoke shell. But it was not a bad guess.

Jari
