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.
