Description: after been with the Gentse Zweefclub since January 1981, it migrated to Sky-Service on March 21 1986 and was used for bannertowing. Initially it was in 1986 seen without titles in the depicted livery (of the previous operator), but later "Sky Service" titles were added. Later in the nineties, it received the full livery and the airframe remained operational till April 21 2001 when it migrated to Propeller bvba. It was damaged beyond repair after an engine failure at low altitude at Kortrijk on July 15 2001, luckely without injury to the pilot during the crash. Much later, on February 8 2016, it was cancelled from the register.
