The Dassault Falcon 8X – Ce est Merveilleux

This is a small Christmas treat for our aviator readership. Meet the Dassault Falcon 8x that was just unveiled. It is an amazing aircraft with tremendous performance gains over some of the competing models. TheFalcon 8X has a range of about 6,500 nautical miles; mileage may vary given environmental dynamics. I’ll tell you something right now, were I in the ELINT business, I would be on the phone calling Dassault to see if they could “militarize” this aircraft for us.
