The Sud Aviation SE 210 Caravelle was the world's first short/medium-range jet airliner, produced by the French Sud Aviation company. Its maiden flight occurred in 1955 when the company was known as SNCASE.

The Caravelle was one of the most successful European first-generation jetliners, selling throughout Europe and even penetrating the United States market, with an order for 20 from United Airlines. The Caravelle established the aft-mounted engine, clean-wing design that has since been used on a wide variety of aircraft.

This site gives operational details of all Caravelle's built together with images from my collection, everything arranged by construction number.

To more easily see the what kind of picture you are looking at I'm using three different colours for the frames around the small images (shown below).
