Dassault Mystere 20 At The 1963 Paris Air Show


Dassault rolled out its latest and largest clean-sheet Falcon jet, the 5X, at a glittering ceremony in Bordeaux, France this week. 52 years ago, its predecessor and original Falcon jet, the Mystere 20, performed a number of flypasts during the 1963 Paris air show at Le Bourget, the same show where Charles Lindbergh famously 'found the bird' for Juan Tripp's Pan American World Airways.

The prototype's air show demonstration flight was featured on the cover of Aviation Week & Space Technology's August 5, 1963 issue.
