Much published photograph of Bf 110's flying
over Budapest, Hungary sometime in 1944.
You can see the Hungarian Parliament building
visible in the background.

Messerschmitt Bf 110 code(DE+MP)was assigned
to Ausb.Kdo Zerstorer, the full German name of the training unit is "Ausbildungskdo" this
unit operated in Hungary, training Hungarian crews flying the Messerschmitt Bf 110C-4 and
G models.
Note the yellow fuselage band of its last
assigned unit, that was 6./ZG1.

This photo is often (erroneously) published
in connection with Hungary's occuption by
the Germans in March 1944.

Messerschmitt Bf 110's arrived for use in
training Hungarian night fighter and fast
bomber crews.
These aircraft flew in German markings and
later received Bf 110G-2 trainers the 5/1
Night Fighter Squadron was equipped with the
Bf 110G-4 these aircraft flew in full
Hungarian markings.

The Hungarian Messerschmitt Bf 110's were
assigned to 5/1 Night Fighter Squadron at
