  Miles M.17 Monarch OO-UMK (cn 787) was owned since 1938 by Mr. Camille Gutt. At the outbreak of the war the machine escaped to the U.K. to be used by Philips & Powis Aircraft. In 1944 it was transferred to the Belgian Section of the Metropolitan Communications Squadron where it became TP819. After a short spell at the Technical School of Saffraanberg, the Monarch was returned for civil use in 1947 and had a series of owners before it crashed at Sint Denijs Westrem near Gent on 21 November 1960.
