Description: this factory fresh Cessna (build by Reims) was registered on September 29 1965 as "OO-SIF" to Sotramat Aviation. It was temporary leased to a private user in the Netherlands (J.G. Dijkstra) and was even registered "PH-AFF" between December 27 1965 and March 3 1967. On March 22 1967 it came again in the Belgian register as "OO-WIF" for the Golden River Aviation Club based at Wevelgem airport, moving later in the sixties to Western Aviation based at Amougies airfield. In 1970 it migrated as "OO-HBF" to B.S.D. Aeroclub F.B.A., established on October 15 1964 and based at Butzweilerhof (Germany), here seen such on a visit to Antwerp airport still in the livery of Sotramat but with the FBA logo on the fuselage. On December 2 1976 it was cancelled from the register moving on to the German one as "D-EHBL" the following month.
