Cessna 182Q-182R Skylane II

As a replacement for the Alouette II the Belgian government ordered three secondhand Cessna 182 Skylane II liaison aircraft on the American market.
Before delivery they were overhauled and standardised at the Cessna factory in Reims (France).
After the loss of G-03 at Melsbroek a replacement aircraft was bought.
