Description: it arrived at Haren on January 16 1939 and was operational till May 1940. Due to the war threat, it wore from May 1 1940 onwards an orange color scheme with additional large "Belgique" titles and was solely used for services between Haren and Shoreham (England). These were halted on May 10 1940 when the German Army invaded Belgium and the airframe went the next day to the Royal Air Force.
