Shanghai - Dassault Falcon 7X

Sort of a rare bird - a Dassault Falcon 7X (registration F-GYBJ) captured short after take-off from Hongqiao Airport's runway 18R. The plane still carries the Dassault Aviation corporate livery, this lets me assume it's a demonstrator. See where this picture was taken. [?]
