F-BOHA was delivered to Air France on 26 Mar 1968, and was stored at Paris-Orly after it had flown its last service on 28 Mar 1981. During those 13 years it carried the names Comté de Nice and Guyane, and amassed 25,614 flying hours and 20,261 cycles. Later in 1981 it was sold to the CCI (Chambre de Commerce et d'Industrie) for 40,000 French francs (about 6000 euros), and flown from Orly to Avignon Provence Airport on delivery on 6 Dec 1981. It was later transferred to the Aéroclub Vauclusien, which still maintained it by 2019, available for weddings and other celebrations. In Oct 2012 it even received a fresh coat of paint.
Air France donated this Caravelle to the Lyon-Satolas airport authorities on 19 June 1979, and for many years the aircraft was on display here with "Aéroport International de Satolas" titles on an all-white fuselage, and with the airport's logo on the fin. By 2005 it had been transferred to the airport fire services, and it became the training object seen here. The Caravelle was eventually broken up on 12 August 2010, after having spent more than 30 years at this airport.
Originally delivered to Air France 26 October 1960 before transfer to Air Inter (Lignes Aériennes Intérieures) 20 March 1974. Leased to Altair Linee Aeree as F-BHRS 7 May 1983. Written off after an aborted takeoff and fire damage as a result of an uncontained No.2 engine centrifugal compressor rotative disintegration at Malpensa Airport, Milan, Italy 2 July 1983.
Classic 1970s Orly with Air Paris DH Heron F-BRSK on the right and Turkish Air Force C-130E Hercules 13188 landing in the far background. Delivered to Tunis Air 16 February 1968 and subsequently withdrawn from use and scrapped. I can still remember the distinctive airport tannoy announcement tune and the strange aroma inside the terminal!
