American Eurocopter held its own birthday party Friday,
marking 40 years in the United States with a special anniversary
event at company headquarters in Grand Prairie, Texas.
Dassault Falcon has celebrated a major milestone in the history
of the Falcon aircraft family with the delivery of its 2000th

delivery of the Falcon Mystère 20 in 1965, the Falcon fleet
has logged more than 14 million flight hours and 17 different
versions of the Falcon aircraft have been designed, produced and
delivered in 67 countries.
