Here comes another pic
As I am very interested in this fruit of cooperation between two smaller nations, which I consider an achievement, I start this thread hoping that all of us could contribute in surfacing pictures of the IAR-93(not Orao), that are not present on the net, or are very rare. I hope that googeler, press or Tomcat1974 could prove very helpful, though everyone else is also very welcome, especially our romanian friends.

Here's one more:
Try here http://www.incas.ro/english/album_fo...2093/index.htm
this is the website of the Designing Institute from Romanian Part.
You should have some new images ...http://www.incas.ro and some nice prototypes.
Thanks tomcat, that particular website is indeed the most comprehensive in terms of interesting pictures of IAR-93s, it's just that I'm already aware of it's existence, as well as every other romanian website on that subject. I was hoping that some of the forum members with some kind of connection to Romania, would be able to post any pictures or scans(for exemple those of the International Air Power Rewiew) in their possession, that haven't been shown on the net before.Originally Posted by tomcat1974
The photo gallery provided by tomcat1974 pretty much covers the subject. However, images entitled 40.jpg and 41.jpg show the cockpits of IAR-99 #712, which received a limited upgrade in the early 90's, not the IAR-93 cockpit.
Here's a couple of pics of IAR-93DC (double seater) #600, with fixed canards for testing purposes (they were used to shorten the take-off distance). Now it is an exhibit at the Air Force Academy in Brasov.

Thank you very much for the two images of 600, I hadn't seen them before, although I had checked the Academy's website wallpaper, and hadn't seen any 93s. Hope you could post some more of this kind.
Here is a rare one:
Would anyone have a high resolution version of the first of the following pictures, or a color version of the second?

For the color version of the second you'll have to wait till I get my hands on a scanner...

Thanks googeler, but I was actually interested in a better starboard view of IAR-93#114, which is visible in the background on roman-45, before its crude repainting at Otopeni. However I would be very grateful if you could post the color version of the other one, or other pictures of 001, especially anyone showing the upper surfaces.Originally Posted by googeler
Here comes another, although low quality, not seen before on the net.
219 was the last -93 to crash in 1998, signaling the grounding of the whole fleet.
Here are some photos I took some years back
There is also a I.A.R.-93 flight simulator at the Aviation Museum in Bucharest...at least...there was one. I saw it....and tested it. I`m not sure if the moved it to the new location.
And here is a color photo with as requested "001"
Very nice photos press. The ones showing #112 must be from Pipera, right.Originally Posted by press
Here is one showing #112 in its first livery. Should there be ahigher resolution version?
Her is an aggregate image showing both the port and starboard side of #001. I'm very interested in seeing its upper surfaces. Googeler offered to post a scan of the001 picture I've posted earlier; would be really interesting.Originally Posted by press
It failed to show up. I'll try again.Originally Posted by George_nkl
here it is, but it's a bit different from the b/w pic posted by George_nkl
Yup...took the photos at the new location in Pipera a few days after it was brought to its new grave..sorry....home. I`m not sure..but I think there`s a story behind #112. It did look pretty neat and tidy when I photoed it. I`ll go on Thursday to see itOriginally Posted by George_nkl
The photos with the old livery aren`t working for me.
ROmania & Serbia should reinitiate co-operation and build another light fighter jet...for our pilot training needs.
Thanks a lot googeler! You can imagine how long I've been searching for this picture. Would you mind telling me what the source is? some book probably?Originally Posted by googeler
Also, if you have more pictures of #001, please post them.
Here is the one I had posted yesterday, plus a very nice photo from incas.ro, which is showing only half of the starboard side though. Would anyone have a better one?Originally Posted by press
Here is another scan showing #001:
Message to googeler:
I have sent a reply to your message: did you receive it?
Does anyone have any information on a presentation of a IAR-93 to a greek delegation, headed probably by the defence minister at that time, during a state visit in Bucharest, sometime around late 1985 or early 1986?
Relevant footage of around 30", covering the said visit, was then broadcast on greek TV, including about 5-6 seconds showing the IAR-93. Has anyone heard of this?
No. But the Iranians were interested in the plane - some of their pilots received orientation flights on the type in Romania in 1989. The dual-seater #605 received a desert camo as part of the marketing effort (see the incas pic gallery in the link provided in post #4 of this thread)Does anyone have any information on a presentation of a IAR-93 to a greek delegation
Here are two pics from an airshow at Ianca AB on April 21 2001 - the IAR-93s were grounded since 1998, and never flew with this camo scheme.
Very nice images googeler! As for the greek implication, I'll try to do some research on that in the near future.Originally Posted by googeler
Here's a (very) low-res pic of 114 with the original camo, from "Cer Senin" magazine.
Small but very enlightening. Keep it up googeler!Originally Posted by googeler
