Description: build in 1960, this second hand FW Piaggio (ex Luftwaffe) was registered on March 30 1977 to Skyworks which was a company establised on January 1 1970 based at Antwerp airport for bannertowing. A first flight was only made after two years of storage, namely on September 19 1979. On February 26 1982 it moved on to a private user (G. Hermans), also  based at Antwerp airport, here seen such during a quiet moment in a livery without titles. It was cancelled from the register on December 13 1982 and went afterwards to Iceland as "TF-LWE" for private users H. Snäholm & partners where three years later, on September 29 1985, it had a write-off without casualties when destroyed by fire.
