In the family album I found this photo. Please help for the pilot identification. Is made in 1935 or 1934. Maybe will help the name on the plane, PZL 11, I think the first letter is "J", "Jaina", or "I". I suppose is not a romanian pilot.
Many thanks,
AC

It is a Rumanian pilot. But without even knowing his rank, it would be very hard to ID him.

Reply for Gen. Dénes: I hope will be identified! Thank you.
and
Thank you Radu for details and message.
I would like to correct: is correct, the accident was on 11 Oct 1936 but Lt. N. Ticulescu died on 1 Nov 1936. Lt. Gh. Pienescu, from the other plane, died in the same day 11 Oct.
Best regards to all,
Alexandru

No details (pilot, year) on the reverse side, is written only:
" Accident "Balamuc" junior" :)

All I can say: in the middle is the prince Nicolae, I presume on his right, the first in suit, is Radu Irimescu minister of air. The pilot behind him is Lt. Nicolae Ticulescu.
Many thanks
Alexandru

In the two pics above is somehow Constantin Abeles? Some of them seem to be instructors.

I have a letter, received by my grandfather in 1934, from another pilot. Is signed only "Aristide". Do you think we can identify him? He was in "Grupul 1 Vanatoare", Pipera fighting flotilla.
Many thanks,
Alexandru

Another photo made in 1935 (or maybe in 1936). I know it is hard to identify the pilot.

Interesting at this PZL, I suppose is a camera, or photo machine gun on the left wing mulliou (montant), please confirm. Under the right wing the mark is like a cross, why?

Very nice photo, thanks for posting. The plane is an PZL-11b-K.
Yes, on that wing strut is a gun-camera.
Under the right wing is the letter "E" from the plane markings "E3" painted with white, is no cross in there.

Can you tell me if Dumitru "Pufi" Popescu is among these aviators.
Thanks,

I’ll try a better photo.
Until then, I can say the first on the left, on the upper step, is Adj. Stanescu. The fourth, from right to left, is Lt. Nicolae Ticulescu (with a colleague's arm on his left shoulder) and the next to the left, with the face slightly covered, is Lt. Dimitriu. They were part of the Fighting Squadron 2, Pipera Flotilla.
