Re: French Falcon 7X at Edinburgh

They are great looking jets How did you identify it - SBS? Hi 'slogen51', I heard it on approach and then picked it up on ADSB where it's details were displayed. I admit it is not 100 pc certain as there are no easily identifiable marks. But as they only have two (F-RAFA and B) I'm reasonably happy...
