OO-SRC Aerospatiale SE.210 Caravelle
photograph is from the Jennifer Gradidge collection and was acquired
ostensibly to illustrate
my still-born book "Airlines and
Airliners of Yesteryear - Volume 2". It was taken at London
port in the mid 1960s.
Sabena purchased a fleet of ten Caravelles for their European network,
deliveries commenced in January
1961. They were operated trouble free until the mid 1970s.
one went to subsidiary Sobelair in 1971
and then was sold back in France as F-BYCA for Catair.
