    Background: Visnews filmed April
    26 the first Caravelle jet airliner en route to Baghdad. Shots were taken at
    Copenhagen, at immediate stops Duesseldorf and Vienna, and during flight. The
    passengers were reporters from El European countries and the USA.

    By the introduction of the Rolls-Royce powered 515 mph Caravelle into scheduled
    commercial service the Scandinavian Airlines System are cutting flying times
    between Europe, the Middle East and Africa by one-third.

    SAS will introduce Caravelle service to the UK and other countries next year
    when they have received all of the 16 Caravelles now in order.
