Title: Sud Aviation SE210 Caravelle

The Sud Aviation SE210 Caravelle was an all-French short /Medium range jetliner which first flew in 1955 and entered service in 1959. With its distinctive triangular shaped windows it was in production until 1972 by which time 282 examples had been built. Several variants were produced over its production run as the increasing power of the available engines allowed for higher take-off weights. Its engine placement on the rear fuselage set a trend that was used for many other airliners, and it was the first airliner to be equipped with thrust reversers and wing spoilers.
