Further to my earlier post, it would appear that this plane was designed totally independently of the Fokker DXXI, but you would say there must have been some influence. Some 42 were built and were used right up to September 1962. There is one still extent in the Finnish Aviation Museum.

In 1939 Finland took delivery of the Fokker DXXI and went on to license produce some 35 of their own. This aeroplane looks remarkably like a trainer version of a DXXI. Is anyone able to comment?

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
