Description: build in 1951, this second hand Piper (ex USAAF) was registered on October 3 1968 as "OO-HNF" to a private user (F. Van Der Straeten). On July 10 1969 it changed to its current registration when it went to another private user (L. Luytens) basing its aircraft at Antwerp airport. By 1974 it had migrated to Skyworks (established on January 1 1970) for bannertowing and based the airframe also at Antwerp airport, here seen such in a livery without titles. On May 19 1983 it moved on to B.A.G. Airways based at Ghent airfield and on June 18 1985 moving on to Westflight pvda based at Wevelgem airport. On January 17 2000 it went to a private user (J. Bruyland), based at Wevelgem airport and since October 27 2015 it's current with Custom Jet Solutions (also based at Wevelgem airport). Meanwhile it was unofficially sold to a private user (T. Van Herck) for possible restoration and is currently stored at his residence at Lille (Belgium).
