Description: this Morane was on November 10 1964 registered  to a private user (A. Van Der Velpen) basing it at Ghent airfield, but arrived two days earlier at Ostend airport factory fresh from Lourdes-Tarbes airport. On November 19 1970 it migrated to Publi-Sky, established on January 1 1968 which was an Antwerp based company for bannertowing, here pictured at its home base with a red sticker indicating the coordinates of this company (see also upper left inset). On March 29 1977 it went to another private owner (J. Vinck) based at Aalst airfield and afterwards on August 21 1979 to the local Aeroclub Aalst, established on June 16 1947. After some time of storage at Aalst airfield it was in August 1982 sold to R. De Cuyper for spares only and on February 1 1983 being cancelled from the register. In 1987 it was seen at a garage in Londerzeel (Belgium), wings clipped and used by a local carnaval club, this after been laid up at Ghent airfield since at least 1983.
