Convair 440 OO-SCK

In 1956 some twelve Convair 440 "Metropolitans" were acquired by Sabena to replace the older version of the same design, the Covair 240 "Liner". The "Metropolitan" was equipped with a weather-radar and could accommodate 52 passengers. The Convair taxiing at Melsbroek airport was registered OO-SCK (c/n 330)
