Yes, that's what I was looking at, but it doesn't figure with the Falcon 20 overhead panel. The 50 is quite different, and I wonder whether SLB has confused an ST flight deck photo with the YI-ALE and the Stark story. That said, we don't know his source yet...

You may be correct it could be the Dassault Mystere-Falcon 20 now located in the Musee European De L'Aviation De Chasse..

Dear Kit,
You are fully correct.
This Dassault Falcon 20 ST F-ZJTS has been used to train Iraqi pilots for the launching of Exocets. As they have done with the Falcon 50 Suzanna in the Stark incident. (My source was not very clear about the Falcon 50).
Sycamore identified the Falcon 20 but was wrong in the application.

Thanks SLB,

A very interesting challenge which took us to some unusual places.

I have something but it needs preparation, so may I say open house, and I will pick it up myself if I have time to get it ready? (Sycamore, if you have something ready to go, please be my guest...).
