Fokker D.XXI FR-110

Dutch-built single-seat monoplane fighter photographed on 24 June 2012 at The Aviation Museum of Central Finland, Tikkakoski.
The prototype of this aircraft first flew on 27 February 1936, and Finland was the first country to buy it, with an order for 7 in that year, being completed in 1937. 10 more were built under licence in Denmark.
Finland obtained a manufacturing licence, and the State Aircraft Factory built a total of 90 aircraft. The last 55 of these had the Pratt & Whitney Twin Wasp Junior engine instead of the original 840 hp Bristol Mercury VII 9-cylinder radial.
Although obsolescent, it gained 187 victories in all, 127 of which were during the Winter War.
FR-110 seen here has been almost completely rebuilt. Between 1939 and 1944 it was credited with 9 1/2 victories, mostly during the Winter War.
