    9 August 1946 Dragomir Zecevic, flying a Yak-3 of the Yugoslav Air Force shot down a US
    Army Air Force C-47A (43-15376) transport over Northern Yugoslavia (Slovenia). Onboard
    were four American crewmembers (including William Crombie, the pilot) and four passengers
    - three Americans, two Hungarians, and one Turkish officer. Everybody on board survived
    and were soon released by the Yugoslavian authorities. The Turkish officer was badly
    wounded in the incident was released after everybody else. (source: http://www.americancoldwarvets.org/cold-war-casualties)

    Somebody would be able to help me, what his name was the two Hungarian passenger?
