OO-ACB was the 5th SV-4 constructed and was delivered to the Brussels' Club d'Aviation in 1936. Note the Tiger Moth type of tail structure typical for the SV-4 before the introduction of the more refined SV-4B tail. On 1 September 1939 this machine was requisitioned by the AéM for use by the Estafette Escadrille.

SV-4 with canopy

Interesting and rare picture of SV-4 OO-ACB equipped with an enclosed and rearward streamlined canopy. However, this experimental configuration was not retained on this aircraft.
