Description: build in 1959, this second hand FW Piaggio (ex Luftwaffe) was registered on Januay 16 1973 to Skyworks based at Antwerp airport. It was purchased for a resale but this never materialized and was instead used by themself, here it's seen still in the camouflage colors of its previous operator, but on June 1 1974 it was seen repainted in a new livery without titles. On July 31 1977, while enroute, it was damaged beyond repair at Markerwaard (the Netherlands) on an emergency landing in a field due to an engine failure, hit a barrier and ditched into a canal. Later the wreckage was transported to Antwerp airport for spares and on January 26 1983 it was cancelled from the register.
