Budapest, November 17 (MTI) – A military hangar complex was opened at the Pápa air base in western Hungary on Thursday.

The complex is capable of fully servicing C17 aircraft and thanks to the unique investment, the use of the aircraft will be more cost-efficient, NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Defence Investment Ernest J. Herold said at the opening event.
