  • ML: Magyar Néphadsereg légiereje / Air Force of the Hungarian People's Army
  • FLT: forced to land
  1. Fratricide combat between the Hungarian MiG-15s and Soviet MiG-17s, that happened when these have mistaken each other for a NATO plane they were trying to intercept, over Hungary, in January 1956.
  2. Some sources present that the aircraft C-47 was forced to land by Soviet pilot (Lednicer, David: Intrusions, Overflights, Shootdowns and Defections During the Cold War and Thereafter, http://mysite.verizon.net/anneled/ColdWar.html, Magnus, Alan: Air Aces Home Page, Cold War Era, http://users.accesscomm.ca/magnusfamily/airaces1.htm, ACIG Team: Soviet Air-to-Air Victories of the Cold War, List of confirmed, claimed, and probable air-to-air victories scored by the Soviet pilots in different engagements during the Cold War, 1948-1989, http://www.acig.org/artman/publish/article_301.shtml http://s188567700.online.de/CMS/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=53&Itemid=47, ...).
