None are currently flying; the Waltair Super Caravelle (10 B3) was the last active and retired mid-2005.
The Air Burundi was retired around 1992. Good to hear it's still around.
Between 55 and 60 airframes extant, of which a couple are potentially airworthy. Despite the withdrawal of the type certificate, see earlier thread, I now understand that there is an exemption that would permit one to fly on the airshow circuit in Europe--IF finance and effort was forthcoming. A nice thought, at least.

Amazing how the crosswinds at Heathrow meant they always drifted left or right after takeoff and thus missed overflying the noise monitoring points!

A very classy looking aircraft but I remember my only flight in one (Luxair LHR to Luxembourg). I have a very long back and I remember the contortions I was doing to try and look out of the window as they seemed so low.

Ah, brings back happy memories spotting Caravelles (or Carrots as we disrespectfully called them) at Ringway in late 60s - SAS, Air France, Alitalia to name 3.

One of my abiding memories was watching a SAS Caravelle deploying its braking parachute on landing at MAN on a snowy day - amazing sight...
