Tail number OO-CTM of Sabena, a Douglas DC-6B delivered in 1954. Sold to the West German Air Force in 1965, eventually returned to civilian service, and after a string of owners was retired in Kinshasa, Zaire, in 1997 and scrapped.

As it was retired and scrapped September-December 1997, already the Democratic Republic of Congo and not Zaire. ;)

Also concerning Sabena, the liquidation sale is still ongoing,

Though it appears cash & collect only, maybe something for Antoine.
