Hi! The Caravelle is a rather old airplane, of which the first example flying a scheduled flight was registered in Norway (LN-KLH) and is now displayed at the Norwegian Technical Museum in Oslo. But I wonder if there is any Caravelles left in the world today? Are any of these flying commercial flights?

There are a few examples still flying in Africa (Congo) I believe. There is also an organization in Scandinavia that is trying to restore an ex- SAS aircraft to flyable condition but this might be the same aircraft you mentioned. Chris

I know of AeroSucre of Colombia still fly cargo ta Curacao, Netherlands Antilles. About 3 times a week.
Also another Colombian cargo company also flew it until some time back. But now they fly the 727-100 over, so I don't know if they retired their caravelles.

There is an Airborne Express Caravelle parked on a small field at Port Columbus. The aircraft is owned by a small avaition museum located on the airport. Recently, however, the musuem announced it would move its exhibits to the Ohio Historical Society and Museum closer to downtown. I'm not sure if the Caravelle will stay at the airport, go to the museum, or be disposed of.
