His space vehicles, being not yet for sale, will have to wait. For now, Elon Musk’s 1994 Dassault Falcon 900 will have to do. The price? “Make an offer.”

Apparently the plane went up for sale back in March this year, but it popped up on our radar thanks to Ed Niedermeyer’s Twitter feed.

Hm. Was it his plea plane?

Top speed is something above Mach 0.8, seating is for 12.

The plane comes with Honeywell TFE731-5BR turbofan propulsion, it features a delightfully ‘90s fake wood interior, and yes, it does have autopilot. Would Musk settle for anything less?

Perhaps most importantly, the pilot and co-pilot sit snug in the finest of pelts. Musk should consider offering regular Teslas with such a feature.

Buy it and dream of the day when you will be able to send a post to 1 Rocket Road (the address put on the listing) and send away for a space plane.

Nice plane, but it’ll be due for a complete avionics retrofit within a few years. CRT displays are going the way of the dodo (the supplier base is drying up quickly.)


That said, I do love me some trijet action.
