From the website;
The Finnish Aviation Museum has preliminarily reserved a 1930’s Junkers Ju 52/3m, operated by the Swiss JU-AIR, to be brought to the Kaivopuisto Air Show. Tickets are available for the ferry flights from Zürich to Helsinki via Berlin and Stockholm and back, as well as sightseeing flights in Helsinki. The historical flight will take place, if enough tickets are reserved beforehand.

They fly 3 biplanes - a Pitts, Christen Eagle and an Ultimate 300- kind of a biplane Extra, a hideous affair.

Thanks for the "Extra" information mate. More planes are always welcome no matter how hideous. We dont get a massive variety up here

Absolutely! The team fly a few formations and then the Ultimate does a solo piece (well that did in 2015!)

Super Hornet E's booked. Report says from Boeing so not sure if they'll come from an active squadron or they will be factory demo models. Plural, not sure how many coming, I'm assuming two!

Had a great time at this show. Some displays even further away than expected, particularly the ATR and the Yak may as well not showed up, but the day was STERLING. what made it great was to see the biggest crowd in Finland this year (well over 100,000) all get stoked on aviation. And full marks to the RAF for supporting it so well, the Tiffy pulled the display of the day, and the Red Arrows won Helsinkis hearts with their Tribute formation.

If anyone is interested, pictures to be found here:
