Technical know-how, quality of flight, exceptional aerodynamics, luxury, and comfort: Dassault Aviation has created legendary aircraft—the Mystère, 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 Here, 150 photographs—some of them previously unpublished—from Dassault Aviation’s archives, along with stunning new photographs, trace the major eras in the history of the brand and aviation: first flights, first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.”
