The Kaivopuisto Airshow, celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Finnish Independence, in Helsinki this weekend, has once again drawn a range of fighter aircraft that are in contention for the Finnish Air Force’s H-X fighter competition.
As well as Boeing attending with an F/A-18E and F/A-18F (the latter being VFA-103’s CAG bird), RAF Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4s and Swedish Air Force JAS 39C Gripens are also in town.

Great photos from today supplied with Rich Cooper/COAP.
