The Hungarian Air Force is buying two former Air Berlin A319s for civil, military and humanitarian use. The A319s, D-ABGM and D-ABGS will undergo refurbishment in Austria by CorporateJet and will be delivered to the HuAF next year.

The opposition parties in Hungary pointed out that these aircraft are clearly for VIP travel, since they are not suitable for military operations. Currently, HuAF uses An-26s for transport.

Cool video but I wonder what was the point.

If it's refurbished by CorporateJet clearly it will be for VIP use not humanitarian, who are they trying to fool ?
