I was looking at a picture of the Caravelle, and realising i had never seen one, so i was wondering are there still any flying?

Any Caravelle Still Flying? (by RAFVC10 Jun 22 2006 in Civil Aviation)

No, seems to be the answer.

Unfortunately not. The last flight was probably in spring 2005 in Congo, were Waltair, a small dodgy cargo airline, flew two of them before they ran out of hours. The type lost its CofA since (comparible to Concorde). One Waltair machine was supposed to remain potentially airworthy for a ferry flight if a museum somewhere is interested.
Other potentially airworthy aircraft are preserved in Sweden and France but actually I think the chances are very small that one of them will ever fly again. Sad



nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

No flying Caravelles for the time being but a group of Swedish enthusiasts are working on getting an ex. SAS/ex. Swedish A.F. machine flying.I don't know how far they've come. Any Swedes out there?

Here is info:

I have been flying caravelle once from Stockholm to Funchal (Madeira) with Sterling Airways.
We made a fuel stop both ways at Santiago de Compostella (Spain). It was a really nice
flight with the large windows and nice weather both ways.
