Description: this vintage 1951 build Piper (ex USAAF) came on September 12 1968 in the Belgian register as "OO-HMP" for a private owner (Van Der Straeten). A few months later, namely on December 11, it migrated as "OO-DAS" to Gedair based at Grimbergen airfield. Here it's seen such at its home base with small "Gedair" tail titles. On August 2 1970 it had a non-fatal accident at Temploux and was repaired afterwards. On October 14 1980 it migrated to private owners A. De Bondt & J. Verlinden but was mostly stored at Grimbergen airfield. In October 1985 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.
