Here seen such on a visit to Antwerp airport in a livery with some extra stickers as (just like OO-EEC) it participated a trans-Atlantic race for light aircraft held in June 1981 between Paris (Le Bourget) - New York (Bridgeport) and vice versa during the Paris Air Show which was called "Air Transat". Above the back window tiny "Aero-Zigo" titles are present as well (see also upper left inset).
