Description: sole airframe, an Avro Anson, of the little known carrier "Belgian Air Service". It was registered on March 12 1949 but crash landed in poor visibilties at Schiphol on August 14 1949 on its third landing attempt due to fuel shortage. This was the result when a flight loaded with lobsters from Stavanger to Eelde had to divert due to poor visibilities. No casualties.
