Folks,
Without "the facts", who knows.
But one thing is certain, from the pilot or engineering point of view, the 7X is an outstanding aircraft, as are its predecessors and Dassault contemporaries.
And the Dassault company is, itself, quite a fascinating story, a living testimony to its founder-- how, with brains and determination, a small independent company can survive and prosper in an era of "Big Government" and nationalisation.
Tootle pip!!
