Fly by Wire Video
The video I've embedded below is my favorite video about the Dassault Falcon 7X. When I watch it, at first I think how great it would be to be that bird in flight! Then I think how it would feel to be the pilot of the Falcon 7x. Then, at the very end, I wish I were the person who produced this video. It's that good!
