Third Times a Charm: Japan's New Reginonal Jet Reaches the United States

Earlier this week, Japan's first domestically produced passenger jet arrived in Washington State after two unsuccessful attempts. The Mitsubishi Regional Jet of MRJ arrived in Grant County International Airport after making a series of stops for refueling from its initial Nagoya starting point. The MRJ has three more long range test flights to the US planned and some potential software upgrades. It is said this plane will hold up to 80 passengers. While this plane will not be delivered until 2018, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has received 400 orders. Keep your eye out for this plane. I'm certain we'll be seeing more of it soon.
