Description: this almost factory fresh Cessna (build by Reims) was on September 6 1976 registered to Abelag Aviation, established in 1964 and basing this airframe at Grimbergen airfield, here seen in the first livery with small "Abelag" titles in the tail (see also inset). On May 1 1977 it had an accident at Verdun (France) without casualties and was considered as a write-off as the next day it was cancelled from the register. However it was afterwards repaired and re-entered the register arriving at Antwerp airport on January 9 1979. On December 15 1995 it was again cancelled from the register, this time moving three days later to the English one as "G-ROWE" for a private user David Rowe.
