Description: build in 1960, this second hand FW Piaggio (ex Luftwaffe) was registered on Januay 16 1973 to Skyworks establised on January 1 1970 and based at Antwerp airport, here seen such in the camouflage livery of its previous operator.

Description: it was never used by Skyworks (acquired for resale only) and migrated after one year of storage to a private user (A. De Bondt), namely on February 8 1974, and based its aircraft initially at Antwerp airport and later at Grimbergen airfield, here seen after being repainted in a new livery without titles.

Date: 1982

Location: GNK/EBZW

Description: after the owner ceased flying on April 15 1982, it migrated the next day to another private user (J. Rutjens) and based it at Zwartberg airfield. However he had little joy with the airframe as six weeks later (on May 31) it was damaged on a belly landing at Zwartberg airfield, here seen such with bowed propellers.

Description: the airframe was not repaired and migrated again to A. De Bondt on July 25 1983 and was transported by road to his property in Zemst (Belgium). It was officially cancelled from the register on February 3 2020 but is still current on the same private spot at Zemst, here taken by myself alongside a public road. As seen on the picture, the engine is removed as well as the cockpit instruments, but is furthermore in good shape.
