This afternoon, another French Navy Dassault Falcon 50 Surmar (‘132’) visited LMML for a brief stop following a maritime patrol mission in the Mediterranean Sea. This was the fifth visit by a Falcon 50 Surmar in 2021 and coincidentally all visits were made with 5 different airframes. Considering the French Navy operate 8 Falcon 50s, this indicates that the aircraft is very reliable and the French Navy can count on most of its fleet being operational at any moment in time to cater for its maritime patrol requirements. Other aircraft that visited LMML in 2021 had serials 5, 7, 34, and 36.
