Short-haul passenger airliner Sud Aviation SE210 Caravelle became developed by French engineers, aircraft manufacturers in the year 1950, in doing so, it was assumed that the aircraft will be one of the most reliable and popular passenger aircraft, capable of carrying out air travel on the distance of the order of 2 thousand kilometers.

For the first time in the air plane Sud Aviation SE210 Caravelle rose in 1955 year, however, the aircraft design was flawed, as a consequence, was additionally sent back for revision, which was for a few more years before starting with the year 1958, the plane did not mass-produced.

The first, but not the only operator of the aircraft Sud Aviation SE210 Caravelle became the airline «Scandinavian Airlines», which began to guide the use of these aircraft with 1959 year.

The external design of the aircraft and its flight performance were not quite acceptable, while commercial air carriers were also satisfied with the cost of the aircraft, which, if used properly, could pay off within a few years. Nevertheless, the design of the airliner turned out to be far from the most reliable, which caused many plane crashes with fatalities. In view of this, the demand for these airliners began to decline, and since 2004, the aircraft has officially ceased to be used in the commercial sphere.

Depending on the modification of the aircraft, the cabin of the Sud Aviation SE210 Caravelle aircraft can accommodate from 80 to 140 passengers, which in most cases met the requirements of commercial air carriers operating on non-extended air routes. This aircraft also found application in the air force, where it was operated as a means of transporting a military contingent on board. If necessary, the aircraft could also be operated as a transport aircraft, however, in this area it was practically not involved.

The power plant of the Sud Aviation SE210 Caravelle consists of two Rolls-Royce Avon Mk.527 turbojet engines, each of which is capable of developing a thrust of 50,7 kN, which in turn provided the aircraft with a high payload and made it possible to fly at a speed of about 805 km \ h. (maximum rate).
