Long range airliner, prototype F-WAVA (later F-BAVA) first flown January 12, 1949, with
large capacity, 7 crew and 84 passengers. In high-density configuration
there was even place for up to 160 pax. A production of 15 was
planned for Air France, after the first flights the airline refused
to accept any aircraft, due to its uneconomical performance. Of the 8
produced aircraft, four were used by TAI (Transports Aériens Intercontinentaux),
but within 8 months after introduction on December 8, 1952, they were withdrawn from
use. Later 7 S.E.2010 were used by SAGETA (Société Auxiliaire de Gérance
et d'Exploitation de Transport Aériens), an airline resurrected purely for
transport for the French forces to the French fronts in Indo-China.
One was used as a flying turbine-prop test-bench as S.O.2060.
