Kedves István!

Ez a régi emlékmű egy jelenleg parlagon hagyott mezőgazdasági terület közepén található. A fotó a Magyar-Endresz emlékmű avatásának napján készült, amit stílszerűen repülőnappal kötöttek egybe.

Üdv,

GyurIca

Dear Würmer!

Endresz György and Magyar Sándor landed here after they flew over on the Atlantic on 16th July 1934.

Best wishes,

GyurIca

1931 rather than 1934 ?

and why "Justice for Hungary" in your title? (and what does the rest of it say?)

Dear Würmer!

You all right!

Endresz György and Magyar Sándor landed here after they flew over on the Atlantic on 16th July 1931.

The rest: The Hungarian sportpilots 1981

Best wishes,

Dear Würmer!

"July, 1931, newspapers all over the world reported on the front page that two Hungarian pilots, Alexander Magyar and George Endresz (Endres), had crossed the Atlantic Ocean from the United States to Hungary in a Lockheed-Sirius airplane named "Justice for Hungary." The flight was intended to call attention to the dismemberment of Hungary after World War I. It was a spectacular success. the first time that an airplane crossing the ocean had radio contact both with the starting and landing aerodromes.On July 15, 1931, the trans-Oceanic flight left Harbor-Grace for Budapest on a non-stop flight of twenty-six hours. The historic flight took 26 hours and 20 minutes (Charles Lindbergh's flight in 1927 took six hours longer) and marked the first time that an airplane crossing the ocean had radio contact both with the starting and landing aerodromes. It was also the first time such a flight was used for political purposes. The pilots were received as heroes in Budapest."

What is your opinion?

I had read some about it before asking (when I couldn't figure what the "Justice" was all about). I had known that enimosity existed between Hungary and neighboring countries but had not made the connection to it here. Now I understand, thanks for the clarification.
