Description: this factory fresh Morane was registered on November 10 1964 to a couple private users (G. Vanderlinden & J. Mus) for air baptise flights from Ostend airport but arrived already two days earlier at this airport after a two day ferry flight from Tarbes-Lourdes airport. Later the airframe was based at Ghent airfield. In 1972 it migrated to Publi-Sky, 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). In 1977 it went to another private owner (J. Vinck) based at Aalst airfield and afterwards in May 1979 to Aeroclub Aalst. 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.
