With 12 053 hours flown, she is sold to the Pradier Company on November 24, 1971 and changes tail marks to F-BTDF.
Pradier sells her on November 21, 1972 to Yugoslavia and she flies from Tours to her new destination, Belgrade, on April 11th, 1973.

She is sighted in 1975 in Tours (Sasmat Company?). At the end of her operational career, she is assigned to the aero mechanics school of the Yugoslav Air Force in Rajlovac. Future airplane mechanics are trained on her for simple as well as complicated repairs. As she was the oldest airplane on the base (and more unusual than the others which were mainly of Soviet origin), she is put on show at the main gate of the air force base, which is common practice at military airfields all over the world.
