Thank you, Lotvonen for your english translation of C.F.Geust text. It's much easier to me to read it in english
Also I would take the additional opportunity to give my gratitude to C.F.Geust who already helped me in work on my first book about Contuniation War. I appreciate his valuable professional help!
Concerning quoted text I think "25km" looks like a mistake on three reasons:
- it's useless to mention so long distance from so small object (nearest ones would be Karvala or Kivennapa then);
- Suulajärvi airfield located much closer to Mustamäki;
- constructors of Lin.RP SAK 5 would never mention it in their WD if they have not seen the event theirself.
So I guess the plane could fall down on Miekkasuo swamp (3km to Kuuterselkä, about 5km to Mustamäki).
