Fifty years ago, one of the fi rst true business jets – the Dassault Mystu00e8re/Falcon 20 – took flight. Since then, 20 innovative models have followed, each with the same sleek lines, smooth handling, and peerless reliability and efficiency displayed by that first Falcon. Today there are more than 1,500 Dassault Falcon jets flying in the U.S. Published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary Falcon 20, designed under the leadership of company founder Marcel Dassault with the help of Charles Lindbergh and Juan Trippe – two other aviation visionaries – this richly illustrated book tells the story of this legendary plane and the remarkable models that followed. Technical know-how, quality of flight, exceptional aerodynamics, luxury, and comfort – the Falcon stands as a coveted aircraft that has earned a privileged place in aviation history.
