Hans Henrik "Hasse" Wind (30 July 1919 - 24 July 1995) was a Finnish fighter pilot and flying ace in World War II, with 75 confirmed air combat victories.

Brewster F2A Buffalo

Designed to meet a 1936 US Navy requirement for a new carrier-based fighter, the F2A was first flown in December, 1937. The stout F2A Buffalo was the U.S. Navy's first monoplane fighter, but it suffered from poor maneuverability and proved to be too heavy for dogfighting. Its four 12.7mm machine guns weren't even enough to save this aircraft-during the Battle of Midway, 13 of 19 Buffalos were lost to enemy fire. Finland proved to be the only successful user of the Brewster F2A Buffalo, fighting off wave after wave of Soviet aggression during three years of war.
