Description: this second hand Cessna was registered on December 9 1977 to Jeugd en Luchtvaart (with an appropriate registration) sponsered by Ford Motor Company. Here it's seen such in a livery inhereted from its previous Dutch operator with titles of operator and sponser. On April 30 1987, it tragically crashed into a yacht when the pilot got desorientated in low cloudiness on a VFR flight to England which took-off from Antwerp airport killing the three occupants on board + two on the boat near Solent Channel, 3 miles East of Ryde, Isle of Wight (U.K.). A crash report can be found here.
