Took off at 11:00AM - trackable on FR24 as BBA507.
Congratulations to Bombardier!
It is interesting that the chase plane was a CRJ 1000 painted in American Airlines livery. I wonder if that foreshadows a big order for CSeries from American Airlines is in the works?
Are you sure that it was a CRJ-1000? American does not currently operate the CRJ-1000. Perhaps it was a CRJ-900 or it might be that American is soon to take delivery of a CRJ-1000?
It was a 900. My mistake. Still a curious choice for a chase plane
One of the Bombardier statements I read mentioned the chase plane being a 900 so I believe you're correct
