Description: a bit later seen with some titles (see also inset for the tiny ones below the tail), with the bigger titles representing the European Community. These titles were added for "Air Transat", a trans-Atlantic race for light aircraft held in June 1981 between Paris (Le Bourget) - New York (Bridgeport) and vice versa during the Paris Air Show. (Another Belgian participant was OO-LVS). A few months later, on August 12, it was cancelled from the register moving 12 days later to the British one as "G-BJCR" for Alvair Aviation without changing the color scheme making further demonstrations for this type of aircraft.
