A very good book:
AVIATIA DE LUPTA REACTIVA IN ROMANIA 1951-2001 / comandor PAUL SANDACHI
( a lot of information and pictures )
Editura Regina din Arcadia 2002-2004, I think.
With CD/pdf .

I want to quote something from this book, but I can't ( I am not a "master" in PC world).

Some information...on a blog..

" Eram la artilerie antiaeriană, iar lângă clădirea dormitoarelor noastre se aflau blocurile abandonate ale unei foste unităţi de aviaţie, ca un cartier al fantomelor. Circula zvonul că unitatea a fost desfiinţată după ce şeful ei a fugit în străinătate cu un MIG. Şi cu drapelul unităţii. "

http://realiatealuipetria.blogspot.com/200...m-furatvoi.html

and more..
"In toamna am fost mutat la CFAM in functia de loctiitor cu Radiolocatia a sefului de stat major. Aviatia urma sa primeasca tehnica noua de radiolocatie, statiile P20, P8 si P3 apoi P10 si altele. Acestea trebuiau instalate la aeroporturile aviatiei militare de vanatoare de la Craiova, Deveselu, Silistea Gumesti, Caransebes, Giarmata si Mihail Kogalniceanu."

http://www.presamil.ro/OM/2005/29/24.htm

and more...
"Locul cu pricina fusese destinat în anii ‘40 unei unităţi militare de aviaţie. Destinaţia cazonă a construcţiilor este deturnată la sfîrşitul anilor ‘50, la mai puţin de douăzeci de ani de la înfiinţare, printr-un eveniment rar întîlnit pe timp de pace. Comandantul unităţii fuge cu un avion de vînătoare în Austria luînd cu el drapelul unităţii. Rezultatul a fost desfiinţarea unităţii militare prin încălcarea unuia dintre cele mai importante prevederi ale regulamentelor militare: drapelul reprezintă identitatea şi onoarea unei unităţi militare, iar dispariţia acestuia atrage după sine desfiinţarea unităţii în cauză.

Între timp apar alte trei unităţi militare, vreme în care locul celei desfiinţate este luat de un orfelinat care va funcţiona acolo pînă la mijlocul anilor ‘80, cînd va fi mutat la Roşiori de Vede. Din acest moment şi pînă în 1998 clădirile rămase libere ca urmare a transmutării orfelinatului rămîn în pază militară, rezultatul fiind deteriorarea prin nefolosinţă dar şi prin înstrăinarea de către militarii-paznici ai dotărilor. Astfel că sobele, caloriferele, instalaţiile termice, ferestrele, parchetul, tîmplăria sunt achiziţionate la preţuri mici sau prin schimb avantajos de către sătenii din Siliştea Gumeşti. În acest interval de timp spaţiul fostului orfelinat devine un loc tocmai bun pentru abandonul cîinilor, călugării spunînd că o vreme, chiar după înfiinţarea mănăstirii, acolo îşi găsiseră adăpost în jur de două sute de cîini vagabonzi. "

In my opinion that's just some BS rumor posted by somebody who has no link whatsoever with aviation.
The only jet fighter defection in the 50's was that of Diaconu, with a Yak-23 from the 135th Reg. at Caransebes to Yugoslavia.
As I said on page 1 of this thread, the 125th was not disbanded, but moved to Alexeni and renamed 49th Regiment. In the late 50's all regiments were re-numbered (two digit instead of three)

Why in some article, appear Silistea-Gumesti, in other Zilistea-Gumesti ?
The other Zilistea I think is in Moldova ( Bobocu ?)

Knew someone what is the "thing" mark off ? An old runway ?

Within the marked area there are:
- the road that connects the base with Baraganu railway station,
- a small residential area on the same road known once as "technical NCO colony" (colonia maistrilor).
- the railroad that connects the base with the main line Bucharest- Fetesti.

There was/is no "old runway.

I was in zone last week, and I meet a man (old professor). He told me a short story, that is possible to be real. Russian want to builtd up an A.B. in zone. Roumanian, propose former A.B. Rosiorii de Vede.
Russian deny this suggestion because americans knew very well the location from 1945.
And choose Balaci/Silistea.
Is possible. In try to prove this if is real.

Not for the entire country, but several new zones with improved resolution.
