The aircraft has a non-standard covered cockpit. It was one of many that had been stored at Grimbergen from the Burgerlijke Luchtvaartschool (Civil Aviation Flying School), a government-owned organisation operated by Sabena.
I turned up at the Museum on a day that it was closed but was kindly allowed access and the freedom of the place, including away from the public areas. I was told that this 1st World War aircraft, totally unrestored had been found in a barn just a few months earlier. Not the best of photographs, being rather contre-jour, but hopefully one that people will want to see. It looked better somehow than if it had been restored.
I had turned up at this marvellous Museum on a day that it was closed but was kindly allowed access, including the off-show areas. My thanks to the staff who gave me the run of the place. What a day !!!
