Silly question - If this An-2 is privately owned and is based at Grenchen, Switzerland, why does it carry Hungarian colours and registration?

As far as I can see from their web site http://www.avschweiz.ch/ it is owned by the club. Using Hungarian registration may be due to its roots, or it is only leased and cheaper to keep it registered there than in Switzerland.
Happy flying!

As far as I know, this beauty remain in Hungarian registration because of hard environmental regulations in Switzerland. This ABA was on our airfield originally, the paint scheme designed by me - but finally the sponsor's logo doesn't applied, therefore the aircraft remain in all blue/gold.
