Cool - IMO - Certainly among the top 3 prettiest airliners ever built.

1) Concorde
2) Caravelle

…it’s a mystery! ;-)



I actually got to fly on a Caravelle once - it was old and threadbare, ex-Alitalia, operated by SAETA, Guayaquil-Quito, 24 December, 1977. Spotlessly clean, very attentive service (passed dishes of home-made candy), quietest airliner I ever experienced, before or since.

There was a live turkey in a burlap sack in baggage claim, bag snugged around its neck, tag attached there.

The SS United States is still docked down the street from me. I'll stop to take a look at every so often. It must have been beautiful in it's heyday. I can't imagine it will ever be restored but that's the plan.

Hey JG,

My father worked as a steward for BOAC (British Airways) on a Connie back in the fifties. His routes took him from London to Tokyo with stops via Cairo, Beirut, Baghdad, Delhi, Singapore and Hong Kong. At each stop the flight crew had two days off before continuing. It was a different time and must have been a wonderful way to see the world.

It goes without saying I have had a soft spot for the Connie ever since.

P.S. He also traveled as a passenger on the SS United States, another beautiful machine I would love to have seen in its prime.
