After been stored for a while in the hangar at Grimbergen, it went on June 21 1976 to a private owner (G. Verzele) and based its aircraft at Wevelgem airport. Later in the early eighties it went to private user (D. Barthelemy) basing it again at Grimbergen airfield followed by more private owners on April 25 1986 (M. & J.C. Delrue & A. Grossi) also based at Grimbergen airfield. From 1994 onwards it migrated to another handfull of private owners, the last one being A. Tondeur on March 31 2005.
