Description: on August 11 1987 it went to Sky-Service and was used for bannertowing, here seen such in the same livery but with "Sky-Service" titles and logo. In 1987 it was temporary leased to Styl Aviation based at Antwerp airport also used for banner towing or towing gliders of the Vlaamse Zweefvlieg Akademie. Since May 16 1995 it was operational in the full blue color scheme of this company based at Wevelgem airport. After Sky-Service decided to drop the bannertowing activities in 2001, it migrated on April 23 2001 to Propeller bvba continuing these activities from Wevelgem airport. It retained the same blue outfit, initially without titles but later with "propeller" titles and logo. After a crash with sistership "OO-VON" on August 27 2019 it was decided to abandon the bannertowing activities. The airframe was laid up at Wevelgem airport being for sale and on September 1 2020 it was cancelled from the register moving afterwards to Germany as "D-ECON" for a private user.
