I have a real strange question.....also Russians had Hurricanes and Spits during the time Roumania had them too.....was there ever a problem for the Russian , German and Roumanian AA teams to make a positive ID given the aircrafts were flying higher and markings werent clearly visible from the ground ??

Was there ever an air to air meeting between a Roumanian Hurricane and a Russian similar or a Spit ?

Victor thanks for brighting me up...I doint know about the magazine you mentioned

Alex

At the begin of Barbarosa the rusian didn't have hurricanes. Rom. Hurry meet in combat mostly I-16, I-153 and Mig 3 and bombers like DB-3.
When soviet got the leand- lease Hurricanes in large numbers the romanian were forced to take out from the first line their Hurricanes( and replaced with IAR 80) for not confusing the rom. AA gunners.
Below it's a 1/24 ( Airfix) scale model made by Dan Melinte with rom. marks.

Dan thanks for your comment and I want to highlight your aviation knowledge , professionalism and for starting this topic ,after all Buzu fame went far beyond the borders of Roumania,was a legend not only in the Balkans but also through the WWII american pilots and WWII Luftwaffe pilots , was an example of an officer, pilot and gentelmen ( despite his divorces) and was backbone of the long and standing Roumanian tradition in the military and civil aviation since Aurel Vlaicu ......I want also to post 3 photos I liked most from Denes book Roumanian Aces of WWII which may have been seen alot though for me were new , and also to recommend his book for all those who don't have it yet in Roumania and out of Roumania forum members because it focuses to the bottom line the history of military aviation and aces of ARR of WWII it contains many photos, is a book no one who cares about Roumanian military aviation history should miss. Is available through Osprey Publications, Squadron and I think Yahoo too .

Sublocotenent Cantacuzino, this Dan Melinte appears to be quite a talented, multi-faceted guy (historian, modeller, artist, author, etc.)... :D :lol:

I want also to post 3 photos I liked most from Denes book Roumanian Aces of WWII which may have been seen alot though for me were new , and also to recommend his book for those who dont have it yet in Roumania and out of Roumania forum members

I believe all three photos were published for the first time in my book.
Moreover, the bottom two photos should be a novelty even for historians from Rumania, as they come from German sources.

It's been out of print for a long time.

Alex, gen. Ionescu wasn't the only ARR general awarded the Knight's Cross and I don't think I left out gen. Ermil Gheorghiu from my other post. Both won the RK for the activity at the command of the 1st Air Corps. Ironically, Ionescu ended up supporting the Communist regime, despite the many photos of him displaying the German orders (notice he isn't wearing any Virtutea Aeronautica Order, although he was one of the few who won all the classes).

The reason why he isn't wearing a pilot's badge is that he was an observer, not a pilot. However, this does not take away his airman status.

Victor thanks for letting me know, I have an other question which may sound to top historians like you and Denes very silly :

Howcome Ionescu just as Flight Observer become one of the top commander of the ARR which of course would put him on top with experienced pilots who held both ratings Pilot/Observers and on top of more capable Airmen and officers....or did he have a vitamin P with Antonescu...? the other question was Gen Jienescu a pilot and based on what merits was Gen Ionescu awared the RitterKreuz ? was Ionescu more powerful as Jienescu depite Jienescu was Air Minister given Ionescu achievements in Krim and Basarabia ? Also based on what grounds Puaker and Mauerer alowed Ionescu to stay immune after the war and safe from prisons when other pilots in the lower chain of command were imprisoned by the communists ? what line of duties had Ionescu with Forzele Aeriene ?

Thanks
Al
