L'utilizzo dell'He-112B da parte delle forze aeree Ungheresi

...Nevertheless, the three He 112 B-1/U2 aircraft continued to serve on. In the summer of 1940, tensions with Romania over Transylvania started to heat up again and the entire MKHL was placed on alert on 27 June.
On 21 August, the He 112s were moved forward to the Debrecen airfield to protect a vital railway link. The next week, a peaceful resolution was found, and the settlement was signed in Vienna on 30 August.

The He 112s returned home the following week.
By 1941, the aircraft were ostensibly assigned to defend the Manfred-Weiss plant, but were actually used for training. When Allied bomber raids started in the spring of 1944, the aircraft were no longer airworthy, and it appears all were destroyed in a massive raid on the Budapest-Ferihegy airport on 9 August 1944.

„Flying Tank” Found on the Edge of Seregélyes

Another WWII aircraft wreckage was recently unearthed in Hungary, which means that another victim of World War II can find his final resting place in his homeland, thanks to the wreck-hunters of the Szolnok Aviation History Display Site operated by the HDF 86th Szolnok Helicopter Base, who are responsible for researching the history and discovering historical traces of Hungarian military aviation.
Based on information from an eyewitness and with the help of a detector, the Szolnok wreck-hunters recently managed to locate the crash site of a Soviet Il–2 ground attack aircraft in the fields of Seregélyes. The environs of Seregélyes saw heavy air battles, during which the Soviet Air Force lost several warplanes.
The Il–2 was the most famous Soviet ground attack aircraft of World War II, and was mainly used to attack moving targets on the ground like trucks and tanks, but in later years of the war it was assigned a role in preliminary air strikes before major bombing raids.
