BUDAPEST AN-2s help

I am trying to catalogue updated information on AN-2 aircraft in Europe, and I have a question about those in Budapest.
MacDonalds had (have) 3 on display at their outlets in Polas Centre (HA-MDQ) , Kerepesi (HA-MHU) and Ulloi (HA-MDK)

My confusion has come from a newly released book which suggests that HA-MDK is now at the Budapest Airport Aero Park.
If this is true what happened to the immaculate HA-YHF? Is HA-MHI still there?

If you have visited there recently (I know the Aero Park has moved to a slightly different location), I would welcome your news.
It's difficult because I dont think any of the MacDonalds machines carried registrations. Thanks.

Apparently HA-MDK and HA-YHF is the same aircraft re-registered after moving to the park.
The original Malév HA-YHF (1G224-13) become OK-IMP and is supposed to somewhere isn Czech Rep. This aircraft was replicated in the Park using HA-MDK.

And (just for the sake of historic precision) the location of HA-MDQ is called Polus Center.

Are you sure the other two are still present, I hope to go to Budapest soon, it looks like the airport museum has two AN-2s and the Mc Donalds examples have gone. The one from the transport museum has also gone somewhere as that has closed.

The Park at the airport has two and the other two are still on display at the McDonalds (Polus and on Kerepesi street).
A couple of examples can be seen at Budaörs airport (along with the only airworthy Li-2 of the world and some Mig-21/23s, Ka-26s etc) well worth a short visit.
Just like the aviation museum at Szolnok. Reptár - Szolnoki repül?múzeum
