The Hungarian People’s Army acquired the plane with the number 206 on 27 March 1952. On 20 March 1957 the plane was passed on to Malév, however, with the military painting intact. The plane flew as a freighter aircraft with Malév.

The ashes of the first president of the Republic of Hungary, Mihály Károlyi, were transported back to Hungary with this particular aircraft in 1963. On 20 May 1964 Malév returned the plane to the army, and the civilian aircraft registration was removed from it. Until then, the plane landed 5863 times and spent 3829 hours in air.

In 1974 the plane was cast off and the Museum of Transportation took it over. The plane was renovated in 1980, and then it was moved to Farkas Hill to the filming of the movie ’Vádindítvány’. From there, it was replaced to the Ferihegy Airport Memorial Park on 13 July 1993 where the plane has been on display ever since. 5306 of this type of aircraft, including military and civilian versions, were manufactured.
