He was stationed at Mamaia airfield and was a part of a IAR 80 patrol who had the asingment of protecting the Cernavoda bridge.

No air combats.
No action.
What is interesting about him is that he was among 14 other pupils who studied in the same class with former king Mihai.

The problems he had were due to the ARR carier and the fact that he was a friend with the former king.
I don't have better scans.Sorry.

Since 1992 they met almost every year at the former king's birthday.
All four collegs are in very good relations.
