You are mistaking here. Only 6 Romanians were awarded the Commander class of the Virtutea Aeronautica Order and he wasn't one of them. He only received the Virtutea Aeronautica Order Gold Cross class with two bars.

Well ,that's what Mr.Lucaci said..
But he wasn't sure.
He said "parca asa se cheama?"
I belive it didn't matter to him at all what kind of "Virtute" he recived!

Lucaci MIhai has a very long nose...
Ones he had some eangine problems with a 109 and made a landing on a corn field.
He was arested by jandarms who were sure he was an American...
He asked them to call the flotila.
There the oficer in charge asked "has the pilot a very large nose?"
-Yes he does,answer the jandarm.
- Ok ,then it's our pilot,said the oficer.

Today I heard from Dobran the story of the motorcycle.
It belonged to the brother if Chitu gavriliu-Traian Gavriliu,who was a IAR 80 pilot and fought in Stalingrad.
The bike was a big and powerful one.
Very hard to handle.
After a while it was sold to a guy from Sibiu who was so grateful that he came after a week an gave them a lot of goods.

Mihai Luccai's first accident.
While making low flying trainings,suddenly the plane stoped responding and Luccaci had to hit the sand.
Exept of a mionor knee injury,nothing happened to the pilot.

Well, beside Lucaci, I recognize Ion Dobran, Horia Pop and Liviu Muresan.

A better quality photo, or a scan, would help tremendously.

Lucaci Mihai had as an instructor ,a strange guy named Ciontu.
Ciunto,during trainings ,use to hold the stick with bouth hands and never let the student to fly.
This behavior made the young guys very angry.
Once during a landing,Lucaci was waving with bouth hands to the guys on the ground.
After landing some other instructor told Ciontu about Lucaci.Ciontu spanked him twice as puniscment...
The very next day Ciontu made a fool of himself by the "landing "above.
