Description: this vintage 1944 build Piper (ex USAAF) came in the Belgian register on May 15 1948 for a private user (A. Mertens) of Brussels. On September 9 1953 it went as one of the first airframes to Christiane Devleminck on behalf of Devleminck Air Services (DAS), established in 1953 which was a flight school based at Grimbergen airfield. Here it's seen at its home base with "DAS" titles in the tail. Its CofA did expire on November 19 1981 and after a period of storage at Grimbergen airfield it was on June 30 1988 cancelled from the register migrating on August 1 of the same year to England as "G-BOXJ" for a private user Andrew John Percy Jackson.
