Pakistan A.F Falcon 20

Post by EF-111 » Sun Apr 29, 2012 1:39 am

For anyone who may be heading to Paris in the near future, Pakistan A.F. Falcon 20 J-469 is currently in the "Round-House" at Le Bourget. :clap:
There is a lot of scaffolding around it at the moment, but it is still clearly visible at dusk when the lights are on inside.
The serial was confirmed to me by one of the Dassault engineers.

Regards, Steve

Sorry not got a clue. My French isn't good enough to get into any sort of meaningful conversation. I just asked a mechanic standing outside the hangar on a fag break (in very basic French) "what number is the Pakistan Falcon 20 please?"
Hopefully it will be there for a while yet as the engines were off when I saw it.

Been there on a full rebuild, we saw in around the time of the Paris Airshow (think it was the same one?!) with no skin on it! If it's reskinned then I would imagine in a month or two?

Having just checked back through Military Aviation Review from July last year, they have J-468 as being the Falcon in maintenance during the Paris Air Show.

Not a problem Chris, apparently J-469 arrived towards the end of January.

Steve,

Hi Alan,

I saw it on April 25th, and it was still there on 28th (the day before I wrote the original post on this subject).
