The Roumanian Air Force was one of the countries who has used the SPAD S.61/2 biplane fighter.
During the first part of the thirties there has been a competition for a new fighter for the Air Force.
The aeroplanes who were tested were the:
Avia BH-28, Siskin III, Fokker D-XVI and the SPAD-SET.

The SPAD-SET was a modified SPAD S.61/2.

All these aeroplanes were powered by the Armstrong-Siddeley Jaguar radial engine.

Now I found in a Roumanian source that the SPAD-SET was powered by a Lorraine-Dietriech W engine, I think that is a mistake, becouse the Jaguar engine was requested.

Who can help me with the following information/materials?
1. Drawings/pictures of construction details of the SPAD S.61/2;
2. All kind of information/drawings/pictures etc. of the SPAD-SET
3. Further everething else concerning the construction and the SPAD-SET.

Thanks
Jjr

As far as I know, that competition was held in the second half of the 1920s.

The contest from the early thirties had, as a result, the selection of PZL P 11 b as the main fighter for the Romanian military aeronautics.

Thanks for this information.

But is there anybody who has information/materials concerning the SPAD-SET, the one which was used in the competition during the second half of the 1920's.
The one which was powered by the Armstrong-Siddeley Jaguar radial!!

The third from the left (with cigarette) looks like very much with my grandfather.
Thank you very much!
