As you can see in the previously picture the car body was modified (front wings) after an accident.

Mr Portocala export the car in '80 After few years of restoration in UK the car is now in the original condition, with the same original CKV 250 british number plates. Mr. Portocala sold the car in '90s .

I think the first person from left, in the color photo, is Alexandru Dudu Frim. Can someone confirm this?
Location seems to be Italy - August 1941 by the delivery of the first JIS 79B's.

This series of colour photos have already been published in an Italian aviation magazine (Ali d'Italia, IIRC), then in a French book on the Rumanian Savoia bombers as well.

Yes, the Junkers Jumo engine is unmistakable.

Browsing the internet, I found at this link the color photos attached below. I also found similar or same black&white photos in the book Rumanian Air Force - The Prime Decade, 1938-1947 by Mr. Dénes.
I have a question for Mr. Dénes, the first two photos with the SM 79B at Buzău-Ziliștea airfield seem to be shot with only moments in between. Can you please tell me if my assumption is correct, and any other information is welcome.

P.S. If the forum admin considers this post of topic, please move it somewhere else or create other topic where we can discuss interesting photos details like uniforms model, person identification, location, date. Thank you!

Yes, you're absolutely correct. However, I don't have any further details.

Any ideas where this cup is, or if is in a museum or private collection?

Hello Denes,

I appreciate your input. I am researching Honkey Tonk Gal and its crew, in particuliar Lt. William K. Little whose grave/memorial I found in Sinaia last year. From what I can tell Honkey Tonk Gal was one of the others that was repaired. I will have a look at your book. If you can think of anything else please let me know. Was the 3rd aircraft you refer to part of Tidal Wave?

Best,
Doc

My great uncle is William ( Bill ) Little I am looking up all the info on him during the war I can find if you have any please share if I can help you I will he was the Bombardier on Honk tonk gal
