    Hello all !

    This book will be published soon, it has 260 pages, approximately 450 b/w photos with the aircraft that operated in Romania under civil and military registration between 1909 - 1948, included a brief history of aeronautics in Romania, and lists with registration numbers and serials for most of the covered aircraft that were found in the archives so far. The text is in Romanian and English.

    Interesting! You think pride would dictate an indiginous aircraft for the cover though... On second thought no.

    Well, given the fact that the Romanian Air Force used so many different aircraft originating from various nations during the war the He 111 is more fitting for the context i guess :)

    Not yet i'm afraid, the biggest issue will be the distribution I guess since it will be self-published.
