Tu-154
The plane arrived in Ferihegy, in Budapest on 24 November 1975 and was set to work right away. Since the B version arrived with an ICAO I standard, it was restructured during the first overhaul to be able to do ICAO II landings making it a type B-2 aircraft.

In January 1983 the business class on the plane was closed leaving the economy class with 143 seats. On 18 December 1991 due to a land event, the plane could not fly for some time.

The last time it flew to Heraklion on 31 July 1992. Afterwards, it stayed in the technological foreground for long. Owned by the Museum of Transportation, the plane was towed over to the Memorial Park on 24 September 1994. The plane spent 21554 hours in air, and landed 13803 times. Until 1993, 911 Tu-154 were manufactured. A few more of this type were however commissioned until 2000.

Li-2
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.
