The Stampe & Vertongen SV-4C is an open-cockpit 2-seat training biplane of wood and fabric construction. Jean Stampe and Maurice Vertongen founded their company as a flying school at Antwerp-Deurne in 1922. The ‘Constructions Aéronautics J.Stampe & M.Vertongen’ started production of aircraft based on the design of Alfred Renard in 1923. After Renard left the company Georges Ivanow replaced him. Georges was asked in 1932 to study a new aircraft, which resulted in the SV4. The prototype flew first on 13 May 1933 and the aircraft entered production. On 10 May 1940, the factory was bombed by the Luftwaffe and destroyed. The SV-4 was redesigned and produced by SNCAN in France from 1945 till 1950. In 1947, the partnership with Renard was renewed.

Stampe & Vertongen SV-4C s/n 151 was built in 1946 under licence by SNCAN - Société Nationale de Constructions Aéronatiques du Nord. It flew first as F-BNDI in April 1946. The aircraft was sold in Germany and registered D-ECDI first and reregistered D-EROB. Stampe & Vertongen SV-4C D-EROB was photographed at Nordhorn-Lingen airfield Klausheide on 18 August 1996.
