Re: Hungarian Air Force in 1956?

It is interesting that only one to me known air-combat took place over Slovakia. Almost 45 Ground Attack Ilyushin Il-10 (3 Squadrons of 32nd Ground Attack Air Regiment 34th Ground Attack Air Division) were ordered on October 31 1956 to the A/Fs Malacky, Trenčín and Prešov to secure border with Hungaria. On November 4 1956 Soviet planes at least two times broke Czechoslovak Air Space and in one incident Soviet MiG-17 damaged one Czechoslovaka Il-10 (32nd Air Regiment) which landed at Piešťany. Command of Czechoslovak Air Force after this incident banned flights within 34th Air Division.
