    For those of us who made it to the factory and/or demo versions of the CS100, this morning the plane we "flew" and heard about has finally made it into the air, and is about to land in a couple of minutes:

    I believe LX will be the first recipients to replace its Avro fleet of commuter jets. We received a very intensive briefing from LX's CS project leader prior to the maiden ZRH-SIN flight earlier this year. They're already building a special pad for this plane at ZRH.
