Mitsubishi to Webcast First MRJ Flight

By Maiya Gessling
The North American Post

Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) have established a new website in preparation for the first flight of the first flight test aircraft of the MRJ (Mitsubisi Regional Jet), their next-generation regional jet.
Because Mitsubishi Aircraft does not plan to arrange for a special viewing area for the general public, a live webcast is scheduled at the new website to show takeoff and landing at Nagoya Airport on the day of the first flight.
Mitsubishi is promoting the jet’s clean-sheet design, fuel efficiency, range capability and comfort, saying “no middle seats means no compromise in passenger comfort with the widest economy seat available.”
