Surtout pour nos membres en France.

United operated the graceful Caravelle. She had a ventral airstair like the much later B727 and DC9.

Like me, I see your up with the birds. I had purchased a number of aircraft postcards while in the service and they do me no good just collecting dust in the album so I been posting them off and on. Thank you for the comment which I added on this Thanksgiving morning. Have a great day.

just a little correction about the amount of passengers: there were 2 versions at Air France:
2 classes with 12 First and 74 Economy, total 86, or an all Economy version with 94 passengers.
I was a dispatcher then...

Thank you for the specifics on the seating in the Caravelle as I made the correction in the description. I did not mention it but I did get to fly in one from Geneva to Nice while in the military in June 1973.
Great to hear from an actual dispatcher of the Caravelle's.
