As goldtimer.hu says:
In 1997, we managed to come to an arrangement with the Museum of Aviation History Foundation about the restoration of its Li-2 plane, in the course of which it became possible to start the restoration of the Li-2. (Meanwhile, the new owner of the plane was the Institution and Museum of Military History.) The first takeoff of the entirely renovated plane was on 21st September, 2001 and since then its success has been undiminished. It has already appeared in Austria, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Croatia, Poland, Germany and Slovakia as the only Lisunov in the world that is able to fly is the HA-LIX. Wherever the plane appears, everybody is astonished.In the summer term - from June to October - we organize pleasure flights at the airport of Budaörs on the first Saturday of every month so that those who want to experience what the air transport was like in the 1950´s can try the Li-2. In the autumn of 2001 we managed to dismantle the Li-2 and transport it from the Amusement Park of Pécs to Budaörs. This plane was also repaired to be shown in the excibition of statics of the Museum of Military Aeroplanes in Szolnok so that the Museum had a military painted Li-2.
- Part of the registration sign on the left side of the fuselage is incorrect.
- The antennas and other small parts are left as they are.
- The blue/white lightning-shape at the front of the fuselage has been modified due to DC-3's different cabin window positions.
- Change the colour of the cabin to the original Li-2 (light green&grey)
