Photographer's Note

Four brave Finnish pilots look like four horsemen of apocalypse emerging from smoke in Polish sky over Radom. They're really good.

Finnish Air Force display team The Midnight Hawks has become a familiar sight to the Finnish airshow audience. Each summer the team performs in various airshows around Finland. The tight and beautiful diamond formation of four camouflaged BAe Hawk Mk 51 fighter trainers in the clear blue sky is a sight one never forgets.

Midnight Hawks current mission is to display the skills and high level of training of the Finnish Air Force for the Finnish people. Finnish Air Force is well known for its very experienced pilots, which once fought evenly against much stronger and bigger enemy. The tradition continues and still Finnish Air Forces trains very professional and skilled pilots. Midnight Hawks is an excellent example of this. It's not the quantity - it's the quality.
