Poland keen on Finnish Hawks -YLE
10.12.2008 at 9:15

Poland has expressed interest in buying some of the Finnish Air Force's inventory of British Aerospace Hawk advanced jet trainers, the Finnish Broadcasting Company (YLE) reported on Wednesday.

The public broadcaster added that the issue had been raised last week when Bogdan Klich, the Polish defence minister, visited Finland.

Poland is in the process of procuring 16 trainer jet aeroplanes and aims to close the deal by the end of the year.

Some of the FAF's fleet of 65 Hawks are becoming redundant as Finland's plans to found an international air combat school in Kauhava have come to nothing.
