Where no airfields exist

Trip to Suomussalmi 18.7.2014

Finally back in business! The 701 was put on floats on Wednesday the 16th of July and on Friday I took it to a cross country flight to Suomussalmi and landed on Lake Kiantajärvi.
Its about 180km flight but I did not quite follow the direct route :)

On the way

Over the forests and the lakes

Ready to go
The plane is ready to go!

But first some fun in the Lake!

Suomussalmi, a small but nice village close to the Russian border.
Suomussalmi is still best known for the Winter War in 1939.

My old school on the left! I studied there in the 70’s
