In October of 1934 Frim, with Vasile Dimitrescu, was making plans for a flight from

Bucharest to Sydney, Australia and return. The plane to be used was the I.A.R.24,

YR-ACI, 340hp Gnome Rhone 7Kd. Did they ever complete (or even start) this

flight? If so, does anyone know the exact dates? Needed--the dates of birth and

death for Vasile Dimitrescu and the exact date of Frim's death.

The date of Frim's death,I cannot tell yet,since nobody of his friends knows exactly.
The dates about the flyight to Australia,it will take me ages to find.
Like I already wrote,his hand write is very dif.to read...

Together with car race champion Petre Cristea,they tested the Renault 12 that was transformed into the national car -Dacia 1300.

Was the first Romanian pilot to fly the BAC 111.

Certainly, he was a remarkable man with an outstanding career. A book detailing his life-long exploits would be more than welcome and would certainly be a success.

For a few days I"m trying to fing Frim's date of death .
NOBODY knows!
I made a lot of phone calls.
I called even Martha Greceanu and Mariana Dragescu.
All I heard was that they don;t know.
Dan Stoian is the last hope,only that he's out of town.
Mariana Dragesu told me that Frim "Could fly any type of plane,at any weather at day or night.."
Once she flew with him in a Savoia plane from the "Stepa Kalmuca".
She told me how the mechanics from IAR have repaired a B 24 who was force landed on a field.Frim took off from the field and took the plane to the IAR factory "as he was doing this all his life.."

Actually, it was a German test pilot, Hptm. Hans-Werner Lerche, who lifted the repaired B-24D off the cornfield and flew it to the closest airfield with a suitable runway, which was Zilistea. It was only then when Frim took over the controls and flew the bomber to Brasov.
