Description: this second hand vintage Beech, build in 1951 for the USAAF, arrived at Antwerp airport in 1960 as "N9482Z" of previous owner Donald A. McGovern. It was registered on December 28 1960 to Aviation Benelux based at Antwerp airport but apparently never carried out a single flight and was at first put in storage inside a hangar and from the mid sixties onwards in open storage. Here seen such in a bare metal livery without titles and most probable also without a registration as it was wiped out after some local folks painted a fake Congolese registration on it.

Date: 08/1967

Description: at a later stage seen with mother nature slowly taken over. It was cancelled as broken up at Antwerp airport on June 4 1968.
