Description: after its CofA did expire on December 9 1982 it was inactive for three years. Renewal of CofA did occur on November 8 1985 whereby also an updated livery was adopted but still without titles, here seen such at its second home base. On December 1 1988 it moved to Sofinair (temporary new name of Publi-Air). On February 2 1990 it went to Western Air Trading based at Amougies airfield moving on May 21 1991 to DC Air Service based at Charleroi airport. Sadly this heli crashed on June 5 1994 when trying to land in gusty winds at Namur (Belgium), luckely without casualties. The fuselage was stored for some time at St-Pieters-Leeuw heliport and was decades later, namely on January 14 2019, cancelled from the register.
