Description: this factory fresh Piper was on February 4 1974 as "OO-GPC" registered to New European Air Service (N.E.A.S.) based at Brussels airport. A month later on March 17 it had an accident at Grimbergen airfield when on landing its nosewheel collapsed. After repairs it went on January 20 1975 to Locatrans nv as "OO-JPJ" but being operated by European Air Transport (EAT). Officially it was sold to EAT on May 6 1980 changing around that time also its livery, here seen such with tiny titles in the red cheatline (see also upper left inset). On November 20 1984 it migrated to Yves Carpentier (who was the founder of Servisair on January 2 1986) being repainted in 1984 and the aircraft came as first airframe into being with his company. On its turn Servisair merged into Flanders Airlines on January 1 1990 and three monts later the aircraft was seen stored at Dinard airport (France). After been sold in England, it was such seen at Southend (U.K.) where it never entered the British register and it was later broken up, most probable in 1994, as spare source to rebuild "G-FLYI". A few decades later it was officially cancelled from the register, namely on November 5 2019.
