Description: from April 1981 onwards it was laid up at Brussels Airport, here seen such five years later. On January 27 1988 it was cancelled from the register and was handed over to the Sabena Oldtimers for possible restoration into flying status but this never materialized. Instead it was used as instructional airframe by the "Vlaams luchtvaartopleidingscentrum" (VLOC) based at Ostend airport on March 2 1995. In September 2018 it was stored outside after it had done its job for the students and on January 21 2021 it arrived at Namur airport to be preserved by the Belgian Aviation Preservation Association (BAPA) in Sabena colors.
