Time travel

I have not only travelled from London to my hometown of Helsinki - but also all the way back to the 1950s!

Last weekend some of us members of the Fintage association got to take part in something pretty special. We dressed up in 50s vintage and headed out to Malmi Airport, where Jirina Alanko photographed us with a 1942 era DC-3 for our upcoming calendar. The DC-3 is an airliner, the speed and range of which revolutionised air transport in the 30s and 40s. More information is available through the DC Association, who kindly hosted our visit.

Here are some results of the photoshoot. It was a day to remember for us all, that is certain. And the photos, well, they're quite something else!

Be sure to browse the full set of photographs over at the Fintage Facebook.


  1. I LOVE this!! It looks like a wonderful day and group of people, if the photos are anything to tell by! :)

  2. Ivonne - Thank you, gorgeous lady!

    Emily & Gracie - It was a lovely day - and with a truly wonderful group of people! It's not every day that you get to step inside a 40s plane with your friends. :)

  3. Thanks for the comment, Jill. It really was cool - and the photos are quite something!

  4. These photos are great! You look gorgeous. Going to take a look through the rest :)
