Description: this second hand Cessna which was already in Belgium as "EL-AGP" for a private user came on September 12 1973 in the register for a private owner (L. Lamot) basing its aircraft at Antwerp airport. After been since July 2 1979 with another private user (C. Leysen) basing it at Balen-Keiheuvel airport, it went on May 14 1985 to the Royal Antwerp Aviation Club (R.A.A.C.), established on November 3 1927, being delivered at its home base three days earlier (May 11 1985). Here it's seen in their own livery with tiny "r.a.a.c." titles near the front window (see also left upper inset) which was adopted during spring 1986 and in the style of Delta Air Transport who was a sponser of the R.A.A.C. at that time. In April 1991 it moved on to Namur Aviation (Publi-Air) based at Namur airport but shortly afterwards, on June 16 1991, it had a fatal crash at its home base. A year later it was noted as eyecatcher near a store at Almere Haven (the Netherlands), in November 2002 seen as eyecatcher at Dick's Outdoor Adventure in Leeuwarden (the Netherlands). A decade later, on February 13 2013, it was cancelled from the register.
