General Aviation aircraft

The Dassault company was formed by Marcel Bloch. Marcel Bloch was a successful aircraft designer before WWII. When the Germans invaded and occupied France, they wanted him to collaborate with the German aircraft industry. When he refused, he was sent to Buchenwald (he was Jewish).  In 1949, he changed his name to Dassault, after the pseudonym of his brother, who was part of the resistance. Dassault became a very successful post-war aircraft manufacturer. Marcel Bloch died in 1986 at the age of 94. His son, Serge has taken over the company from his father.

Pictured below is the Dassault Mystere Falcon 900 (N626EK) at Camarillo in July of 2006. This aircraft was manufactured in 1996.
