RIVER JIU
HIGH SCHOOL
TUDOR VLADIMIRESCU, ROMANIAN LEADER OF 1821 UPRISING AGAINST THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE. HE WAS TOUGHT WARFARE BY RUSSIANS, DURING THE RUSSIAN -TURK WAR OF 1806-1812. DURING THE UPRISING WAS ALLIED WITH GREEK MOVEMENT NAMED ETERIA, LED BY ALEXANDROS IPSILANTI.
FINALLY, TUDOR WAS KILLED BY GREEKS, PROBABLY DUE TO OTTOMANS INTELLIGENCE SUBTERFUGES. HIS ARMY WAS COMPOSED OF INFANTRY NAMED "PANDURI", CHARACTERISTIC MILITARY UNIT OF TIME IN SOUTH ROMANIA.
HE IS WEARING THE PANDUR UNIFORM AS IT IS DEPICTED IN THE SCULPTURE.


TIRGU JIU IS CLEARLY ONE OF THE MOST CLEAN CITIES I SAW IN ROMANIA LAST YEARS...

Garcea esti o figura..
Foarte faine pozele tale, Richard.
Cel mai cool e helicopterul acela rosu de la header , misto de tot!

garcea smerit said...

Cartime imi ajunge certitudinea ca l-am zgindarit pe sefu´de blog, nu mai confirma si tu ca-mi iau un obiectiv in mecla. aehmm sunt io daltonist sau e oranj?...aaa ai alergie la portocaliu, m-am prins.
Repet intrebarea, nu e unul din cele 2 Dauphin-uri care l-au debarcat pe ceashka la Pitesti?

richard said...

@GARCEA No, they are not the helicopters of Ceausescu. Enter the link of SAS HELICOPTERS and get some more info. I was the godfather of the company, by the way.

garcea curious said...

i did but there is no information about the provenience and construction year.
well, just couldn´t restrain myself to make some stupid jokes "be proud, dude, you´re in the chopper that the beloved conducator made his last flight". Godfather of the company!? some more details if you please? you have a pilot license also?

richard said...

As I told You, i was a SEAMAN! I just chose the name and made the logo,means i did the branding.The anchor of symbol is my signature as a matter of saying.You know also that the word SAS means eagle in Hungarian. Erted most?

Sok sas, sok dög.
Sasnak sas a fia.
Sas legyet nem fogdos.
Many eagles, many dogs.
The eagle son is also an eagle.
Aquila non capit muscam.
