The Dassault Falcon 7X is a large-cabin, long-range trijet manufactured by Dassault Aviation, the flagship offering of its business jet line. It was first presented to the public at the 2005 Paris Air Show. The Falcon 8X is derived from the 7X with longer range afforded by engine optimizing, aerodynamic refinements and an increase in fuel capacity.[5] It is one of only two trijets in production, the other being the Falcon 900. It features an S-duct central engine.

With Global coming soon, this marvellous piece of engineering would fit in really well due to its long range capabilities.

We can have this one.

Other good trijets: the 727. BRING IT TO US…

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a business jet with three engines. Nice though. I want it.

Wow, I’ve never seen a trijet this small! Interesting, I wonder how much fuel it uses compared to other aircraft of its size.


Even thought it was for only 15 mins, it was really cool.
