The Sud Aviation SE210 Caravelle was the world's first short/medium-range jet airliner, produced by the French aerospace company Sud Aviation. 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. The Caravelle established the aft-mounted engine, clean-wing design that has since been used on a wide variety of aircraft.
