A group of 21 BAES members had an excellent military tour of Romania in late July by invitation from the Public Relations department of the RoAF. They visited 6 RoAF bases, 2 storage areas, a police flying unit at Baneas and two excellent museums. Hign point of the tour was the RoIAS at the Mihail Kogalniceanu Airbase. For more information see the Romania 2006 report at BAES website.

The Ilyushin Il-28 is a jet bomber aircraft that was originally manufactured for the Soviet Air Force and was the USSR's first such aircraft to enter large-scale production. It was also licence-built in China as the Hong H-5. The NATO reporting name for the type is Beagle for the bomber, Il-28R reconnaissance version, and Il-28T torpedo-bomber, and Mascot for the Il-28U trainer version. Estimates for total production in the two countries ranges from 2,000 to as high as 6,000. In the 1990s, hundreds remained in service with various air forces, over 40 years after the Il-28 first appeared.
