Imi pare rau dar domnul IVANOV IACOB nu a fost pilot.A facut parte din personalul navigant ca mitralior.A facut razboiul ca mitralior pe avioanele IAR-39,JU-52 si JU-88.

Am observat ca aveti ceva date despre armata romana in al doilea razboi mondial.Vream sa adaug ca pe pilotul de avion Ju-88 Iacob Ivanov l-am descoperit citind un ziar local care il descria ca pe un erou si ai prezenta perioada mizera prin care trece la cei 95 de ani,traind intr-o cosmelie singur si fara ajutor.Am avut dorinta sa-l cunosc personal si asa am fost la bordeiul lui din Vaslui si a inceput sa deapane amintiri,mi-a spus ca a fost pilot de bombardier si ca chiar la transportat si pe maresalul Goering al Germaniei.
Este pacat sa vedem cateodata eroi care au luptat pentru viitorul nostru,zbatanduse singuri la o asemenea varsta fara sprijin!
