Description: this vintage 1962 build Piper came in the Belgian register on October 16 1975 for Limburgse Vleugels, established on July 5 1957 and based at Zwartberg airfield. Here it's seen such at its home base in a livery without titles. On January 13 2002 due to engine troubles it had at its home base an emergency landing shortly after take-off whereby the airframe was substantially damaged. On August 20 2002 the ' wreck ' was sold to Vroman Air Services based at Wevelgem airport and was afterwards repaired to flyable conditions. On September 8 2006 it moved on to a trio private owners (C. Neydt, R. Cuypers & F. Peeraer) basing their airframe at Midden-Zeeland airfield (the Netherlands). In the course of the following years only C.Neyd (in cooperation with CNE Air bv) remained as user and it was in 2014 also temporary used by Koninklijke Vliegclub de Wouw at Goetsenhoven airfield. Since November 23 2021 it's current with another quintet private owners (Y. Depret, S. Van Herck, B. Geraerds, F. Van Putten & C. Verhoest) basing their aircraft at Zoersel airfield.
