Speculation: Hungary will have to buy Russian natural gas if Exxon waits on offshore project / Hungary Military Plane arrives in USA

Last night I saw this Hungarian military plane being tracked as it was arriving in U.S. and wondered what was going on:

Then this morning I saw this news, and wondered if by chance it is related:

Hungary will have to buy Russian natural gas if Exxon waits on offshore project: minister

Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto said on Wednesday his country would again turn to Russia for natural gas supplies if Exxon Mobil Corp has not decided by September whether to invest in a massive Black Sea offshore project. ...

Falcon 7x belongs to the Air Force in Hungary? It's a luxury jet, my friend has its big brother, the 900ex EZ.

In this case, it appears so.  Must be a VIP.  There are a group of anons (mostly ex-military) who quietly monitor all military air traffic in the U.S. and this particular plane caught my attention; why is a plane registered to Hungarian Air Force coming into the U.S.?

There has also been a recent uptick in a few Saudi Military Medical planes flying into U.S. air space lately.  Guessing some rich Saudi needs medical attention.

The Swiss have an Air Force?  I'm genuinely surprised, guess I was thinking the Swiss were always "neutral".

I assume you're being sarcastic, but for those who missed the joke:  the Swiss are neutral because they're armed to the teeth in a mountain stronghold.  Switzerland has a stronger gun culture than the United States.  No one dares attack it.

My retired Air Force friends never got to fly this kind of luxury until they retired and flew for the "rich bastards". This is a fairly standard configuration for the 900EX EZOs7xPOK%2BOrI

Maybe, sounds plausible.

I don't know the ins and outs of protocol regarding who travels in what transport, but PM Orban came to the US to meet Trump a day or two ago.

Now that I think of it, Air Force One belongs to our Air Force, so maybe the Falcon is Hungary's Air Force One?

Very. He's quite happy now that he's in the three comma club. We hung out a bit more when he was only 100 times wealthier than me, but a thousand times is another league.
