Gábor Somogyi-Tóth, operator of Aeropark, an outdoor aviation museum on the edge of Terminal 2, would like to move the old Malév aircraft on display there to Terminal 1 and add simulators, multimedia components and a gift shop into the mix, Hungarian news agency MTI reported.
Somogyi-Tóth said that his plan would cost a lot of money, however, he added that he is in talks with government representatives regarding the move.
