Federal Express Dassault Falcon 20 Freighter - N332FE
The Dassault Falcon 20, built from 1963 to 1988, is a French built business jet but is best known in the United States as the original backbone of Federal Express. The company started overnight operations on April 17, 1973 with fourteen of these jets that connected twenty-five cities in the United States. That first night, 18 packages were carried. Services included both overnight and two-day package and envelope delivery services, as well as Courier Pak. It is seen at the Federal Express Museum at its Memphis Airport Global Hub. The very first Dassault Falcon 20C delivered to FedEx (N8FE) is on display at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center of the National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institution. These were used by FedEx until the early 1990s.
