Here is a set of 3 photos I received from Mr. Dorel Popescu, the son of adj. av. Victor Popescu

At a quick glance I was only able to find the Virtutea Aeronautica Order he received. Any further info regarding his career would be welcome.

Here's what I've found:
Date Type Nr. Unit Crew Place Cause Notes Source
17-szept-44 I.A.R. 80/81 Gr. 2 van. adj. Victor Popescu Cluj van. lovit in lupta aeriana, reintors

Is it him?

Do his relatives have his logbook?

Yes, it's him. I made a mistake about the rank (I corrected it in the meantime). Mr. Popescu has the logbook and agreed to make a copy of it. Hopefully on Monday or Tuesday when I will be in Craiova, I will have time to meet with him and get the copy.
