It is always good to return home to the HDF 86th Szolnok Helicopter Base, and it is especially so after a more than 30-hour drive, having covered a total of 4,550 kilometers. Led by WO1 Károly Magó, the members of the Horthy expedition left Hungary for Russia on August 13. Being somewhat tired but their eyes gleaming with joy, they received the congratulations from Col. János Nagy, Deputy Commander and the personnel lining up to welcome them home in the barracks of the Szolnok unit on Thursday, August 23.

Led by Lt.-Col. Gyula Pelczéder, the first contingent of the Hungarian Defence Forces Mi-17 Air Advisory Team (HDF AAT-1) – that had deployed to Afghanistan last August – set foot on Hungarian soil again in the evening of January 21, to the delight of their superiors, colleagues, family members and friends who were there to receive them.
