In ARR, there was no class (or "caste", if you will) difference between pilots and observers. Both were airmen. Moreover, on multi-crew airplanes - particularly bombers - the on-board observer was the aircraft commander (not the pilot) and outh to be an officer. Therefore it's entirely plausible for an observer to hold high ranks in ARR.

This is off topic, however. We should open a new thread, as I wouldn't like this one, dealing exclusively with Bâzu Cantacuzino, to drift away...

Did anyone scan the book about Bazu ? Or is there anyone from Bucharest who could borrow me the book ? (I won't ruin it I promise :) ).

Denes, I agree and you have a good point, that brings me to my next Q & A ......I think this thread about Buzu should be expanded on Internet to eventually encourage more participation from outside sources of this forum both in Roumania and abroad perhaps , thus gather more resources and photos of Buzu we may haven't heard of and seen yet... ? what do you think ?

I doubt someone would actually search for Buzu. Maybe for Bâzu.

And a picture taken from a rom. He 111 ( nr.5) with rom Hurricane flown probably by Cantacuzino. The observer and the pilot said that the Hurricane pilot get very close to them and wave the hand to encourage them. Only a reserve officer (and civil pilot) could make not allowed maneuver for a military pilot.( I don't believe that Toma Lucian or other military career from 53 squadron to do that). It was not for the first time Bazu made this. Also Cpt. Popescu Oita remember in one mission Bazu made the same maneuver because he knows many pilots from LARES are bombers pilots in WWII.

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.


And below 53sq Hurricanes camouflaged near forest at Saltz airfield.( picture Aripi romanesti)
