Taken at Ostend in the early eighties, this Metro was the sole aircraft of L.A.W. wearing old Sabena markings.  (Photo: collection Skystef)


Base: Charleroi
Fleet: 1x Swearingen Metro (OO-LAW)
History: formed in 1980 as a division of Aviation Spare Parts Europe (Aspair), it operated some regional services from Charleroi-Gosselies, Liège-Bierset & Ostend to London Heathrow on behalf of Sabena. In June 1980, L.A.W. leased one Metro II from its parent company which obtained the full colors of the Belgian flag carrier. This airframe was returned by July 1981, ending its operational status. For a while the Metro continued operating for Sabena via Publi Air
