Description: this almost factory fresh Cessna (build by Reims) was registered to Abelag Aviation on September 6 1976, based at Grimbergen airfield and here seen in the first livery with small "Abelag" titles in the tail (see also inset). On May 1 1977 it had an accident at Verdun (France) without casualties and was considered as a write-off as the next day it was cancelled from the register. However it was afterwards repaired and re-entered the register arriving at Antwerp airport on January 9 1979. On December 15 1995 it was again cancelled from the register, this time moving three days later to the English one as "G-ROWE" for a private user David Rowe.
