Description: the official recordings say 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 saying "operated by Air Belgium" with its logo. However as this pictures reveals, the sticker was also added one year earlier so most probable this kind of lease did occur during the Summer season of 1984 as well although no sign of it in the available literature. 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.
