I heard today a story about Bazu;
At every airfield that Bazu was in ,he arrived with a pair of biciclet and a blonde girl(a diferent one each time).Those two used to arrived some time before Bazu,and then everyone knew that the prince is coming soon..
Another fact is that Bazu (perhaps because the loud sound of the engines) could not hear well.Thats why, while speaking on the phone,you could hear him from miles.. :P

To those who are old .... :lol: :lol: and had seen the soap opera Dallas,
Linda Grey(JR's wife) was the dauther of an ex wife of Bazu.
From all the vet pilots I met,there was no one who said a bad word about him.

Last summer i saw the memoirs of Maria Rossetti-Enescu (Bâzu's mother) ; it's a bilanguage book (french/romanian) and it seems that there are only 1000 edited. I think that there were edited at Bacau, but i do not know more about it.

If You know something more about this book (where I think it is possible to find some inedit informations about Bazu); please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours,
BM

my origins are from Bacau too. Alexandru,please, ask to the Ateneu if they know something about the book. If not to the Glissando library, thow i'm not shure that it was commercialised. Or maybe some examples could be found at Tescani?

Nice knowing you Alexandru, next time i'll come to homeland i'll contact you.

[quote].....

If his family name is not a coincidence, he belonged to one of the most famous aristocratic Romanian families.
He could afford a different blonde girl each time...

For Indrid:

I saw you are fond of German stuff: heroes and equipment.

After August 23 Bazu arrived to the American airport in Italy where he handled the message from the new Romanian government. He landed in a Me-109.
The American pilots were very eager to test in flight his Me-109. One of them took it for a trial, but he could not lift before the end of the runway, and he damaged the plane.
As Bazu had to return to Romania, they gave him an American fighter plane. Even though it was for the first time in his life when Bazu had the chance to pilot that type, he took off, then he made some acrobatics, just for show, then continued to Romania.

You actually met some WWII pilots? That's great.....any well-known ones?

I think this is due more to his being a fighter pilot, rather than being a prince. For some reason, in every part of the world, women go crazy after fighter/test/recon pilots... :)

He was an atletic and hansom (if permitted :) ) man and I think also that it was Bazu's personality to be a women lover.Also he had a passion for the roulette game....

Ok, I'll try to find it. It seems interesting and pretty rare. I know very well the Glissando crew (been one of their best client in high-school) and perhaps they know something about that book. Maybe the History Museum might hold the book, seeing that it's quite on their own alley...

This after February 4, when I end all the exams...

Bacau rules! Did I tell you about the future Anarchist Moldavia, with Bacau as its capital? :drunk:
