The official website of the Hungarian Defence Forces - honvedelem.hu - had an article of the HDF 59.. Szentgyörgyi Dezső Air Base, the future plans to expand the air base with a civilan terminal. But! One small fraction of the article caught our eyes.

Translated to english:

Altough this year there wont be any domestic airshow, the excellent qualities of the Gripen and the skills of our pilots we can demonstrate at airshows abroad. Our two new demo pilots: with Major Laszlo Szatmari and Captain Andras Gottschall we already put together a program, at the moment we are waiting for the approval of the superiors. It is planned that for the first time people can see the Gripen demon at the Croatian Air Force day. And those who cannot join this May event, they can see the program during the summer in Spain, Germany, Romania, England, Slovakia, Belgium and the Czech Republic.

Its already known that the Hungarian Air Force already confirmed to Motril Airshow in Spain, Sanicole International Airshow in Belgium, the NATO Days in the Czech Republic and the open day event for the 35th anniversary of the NATO E-3 AWACS Component in Geilenkirchen Air Base, Germany.
