Hungarian Air Force in 1956?

Some strange question, almost 50 years ago there was a big revolution in Hungary. This country had relived itself from Soviet domination for a while in October, November 1956.
Before revolution People Hungary had quite big air force of Mig-15, Mig-17, IL-28, An-2, Il-10, ect. I wonder if there were any comabtaction of this revolutionary air forces and what about Soviet air actions over Hungary to smash the Hungarian revolution

From Poland there were made small air lift/support. Polish military transport planes had made 15 flight to Budapest between 26 X-4 XI 1956, supplaing Hungarian goverment, people with medicine, blood, food. Poland had organised a great support/help for Hungarian in these days.
