Description: the third DC10 for Skyjet arrived at Brussels on July 19 1996 as "V2-LER". Between August 6 and August 21 1997 it was written into the Belgian register as "OO-HPN", but it remains unclear if the aircraft actually wore this registration. No photo's exist, so this Skyjet's pictorial story is limited to the ones with the Antiguan registration.
