Description: on October 14 1980 it migrated to a duo private owners (A. De Bondt & J. Verlinden) but the airframe was mostly stored at its home base Grimbergen airfield, however here seen during a visit at Antwerp airport in a yellow livery without titles but in the tail a small logo of Vliegclub Grimbergen. In 1985 it was for sale and in October of the same year it went to Christiane Devleminck and this on behalf of Devleminck Air Services (DAS) which was a flight school based at Grimbergen airfield. On February 13 1986 it moved on to a private owner R. Cuypers which based its aircraft at Kiewit airfield. From 1990 onwards a couple (private) owners followed ending with A. Lievens which based its aircraft at Ursel airfield. On October 1 2019 it was cancelled from the register being exported to France as "F-HLOG" for Union Aérienne Lille Roubaix Tourcoing.
