The Dassault Adventure : A First Century of Aviation
by Luc Berger




Overview -
Technical know-how, quality of flight, exceptional aerodynamics, luxury, and comfort: Dassault Aviation has created legendary aircraft--the Myst re, Mirage, Falcon, and Rafale--for 100 years. Here is the story of that company, founded during WWI by Marcel Bloch, later Marcel Dassault, when, at 22, he created a new wooden propeller. Today, Bloch's company is an international success, a major player in both civil and military aeronautics. Here, 150 photographs--some of them previously unpublished--from Dassault Aviation's archives, along with stunning new photographs, trace the major eras in the history of the brand and aviation: first flights, first jets, and today's 3D revolution. Throughout, Dassault has followed its founder's motto, "When a plane is beautiful, it flies well."
