Description: this factory fresh Cessna of Sotramat Aviation was initially registered in the Netherlands as "PH-LES" on October 12 1966 and operated by J.G. Dijkstra. On January 3 1968 it went to J.J. Luysterburg with the same registration carrying "SFS" titles in the tail (of Sotramat Flying School). On October 20 1971 it came in the Belgian register, here seen such in a livery without titles. In 1978 it migrated to Aéroclub des Rièzes, later in the seventies going to private owners (J. van der Heyden & G. van Bergen). In 1980 it went to Diest Aero Club and on May 18 1989 back to Aéroclub des Rièzes. On January 28 1994 it was damaged beyond repair when parked inside an hangar which collapsed at Diest airfield. Decades later, on February 3 2020, it was officially cancelled from the register.
