I am so glad I can see it painted.Nice plane. We all hardly wait for the first flight (I am working as IT consultant at Bombardier). Another good news: today I saw that Transport Canada gave the green light for the first flight (jeez, what is this, the airplane poetry LOL)

A beautiful aircraft, looks amazing in the Bombardier colors, and those Pratt and Whitney PW1500G engines look powerful.

Looks like squished a 787. I wish aircraft design evoked more emotion these days.

BOMBARDIER CSeries gets fresh coat of paint in preparation for first flight

First flight cannot be too far off as Bombardier rolls out first flight test aircraft "FTV-1" in company colors. In my opinion this has to be the sleekest looking airliner on on the market. In the "looks" department they are blowing the competition out of the water.
