Description: according to the available literature, it was between April 1 and September 30 1985 leased to Air Belgium retaining the Sobelair outfit but with a small sticker on the fuselage "operated by Air Belgium" with its logo. However as this pictures reveals, the sticker was also added at least one year earlier so most probable this kind of lease did occur during the Summer season of 1984 as well. It's feeded by the fact that in the Summer of 1983 a contract between Air Belgium and Sobelair was signed to switch their B737's when capacity is demanded, so it's even possible this sticker was added during the Summer of 1983.
