SUD-EST SE-210 Caravelle (F-BHRB)

提交時間:

This is a postcard I purchased in the early 1970s. I did not photograph this image!

Surtout pour nos membres en France.

Shown here is a 1961 Air France Caravelle III which was the first commercial aircraft with twin jet engines mounted at the rear of the fuselage establishing a clean wing design configuration that is still used by smaller jetliners today. Along with a ventral airstair the aircraft held up to 94 passengers with seating for 12 in first class and 74 seats in economy or it could be configured for all econimy seating up to 94. It was first produced in 1959 and withdrawn from service in 1978. Air France monogrammed there Caravelle's and this aircraft was named "Lorraine". United Airlines ordered 20 of these for there fleet back then.

United operated the graceful Caravelle. She had a ventral airstair like the much later B727 and DC9.

Like me, I see your up with the birds. I had purchased a number of aircraft postcards while in the service and they do me no good just collecting dust in the album so I been posting them off and on. Thank you for the comment which I added on this Thanksgiving morning. Have a great day.

just a little correction about the amount of passengers: there were 2 versions at Air France:
2 classes with 12 First and 74 Economy, total 86, or an all Economy version with 94 passengers.
I was a dispatcher then...

Thank you for the specifics on the seating in the Caravelle as I made the correction in the description. I did not mention it but I did get to fly in one from Geneva to Nice while in the military in June 1973.
Great to hear from an actual dispatcher of the Caravelle's.
