RE: Sabena And The Britten-Norman Islander

Sabena utilised an Islander from May 1971 until 1973 (guesstimate) which was owned by Publi Air on (very) short-haul routes from Brussels to Antwerp and Eindhoven (possibly also Amsterdam). This followed similar flights operated before by a BIAS DH114 (from 1968) and a Beech Queen Air (from 1967) an...
