Post by Levente »

So guys, if you have any photo or video of the hungarian An-26 in the past, cherish it...cause the type will fly for the last time soon. Hopefully more I can provide.

2x A319 and 2x FA7X are kind of new in the fleet and have been flying way more already than the An26, so they probably replace most of the role of the an26, and when needed, the NATO C17s can be called of course
