Caravelle Late 1950s Finnair Airplane Model



Big metal mid century modern Caravelle Finnair airplane model produced in Berlin by Schaarschmidt Modellbau. This Finnair is in beautiful vintage condition and has been part of my private collection for over 10 years. Measurements: W 69 x L 65 x H 32 cm. The Sud Aviation SE 210 Caravelle was the world's first short/medium-range jet airliner, produced by the French Sud Aviation firm. Its maiden flight occurred in 1955 when the company was known as SNCASE. The Caravelle was one of the most successful European first-generation jetliners, selling throughout Europe and even penetrating the United States market, with an order for 20 from United Airlines. The Caravelle established the aft-mounted engine, clean-wing design that has since been used on a wide variety of aircraft.
