I think most of us have defining memories of this jet................I was 4 years old and still vividly recall seeing it at Philadelphia International when Dad would take us there for dinner just to watch the planes take off and land..........

I think as a youngster I flew on one from Chicago to Pittsburgh on United. I seem to remember it was a first class only flight. Is that possible or a dream ?

i flew on a united caravelle a few times, noting that the caravelle was different from the boeing 720's and very comfortable. The design was pretty to look at, the seats were comfortable, and the experience was exotic . Nice airplane, good for a time in airliner history.
