From The Archives: Dassault/Pan American Falcon F Makes Maximum Performance Landing

The cover of the Dec. 14, 1970 issue of Aviation Week & Space Technology shows a Dassault Falcon F with Pan American World Airways livery, uses a drag chute while making a maximum performance landing at Teterboro, N.J. The chute generally is used only in emergencies or during icy runway conditions. Shortfield capabilities of corporate turbojet aircraft such as the Falcon F, contributed to increased use of U.S. company-owned aircraft for travel abroad.
