PH-MEN was repainted by the Paraclub Flevo in 1993 according the result of a contest for the new colour scheme. Herve Backer won the contest and the PC-6 got a really spectacular new livery. Unfortunately, the so called "red Zebra" was lost in a tragic mid-air collision with a Cessna 172 at Spa in July 1995
