Military To Practice Flyovers In Budapest On Monday
Aircraft of the Hungarian military will practice flyovers in preparation for an August 20 air show over Budapest in the early afternoon on Monday, the defence ministry told MTI.

The practice will involve increased noise in the area around the parliament building and the Chain Bridge between 1.30pm and 3pm, while the River Danube will also be partially closed for traffic, the ministry said.

The nearly onehour air show itself is scheduled to start at 9am on the August 20 national holiday as part of state celebrations.
