Bombardier CRJ

Bombardier CRJ
A comment on yesterday's post tells me that Bombardier, who came to fame as the Canadian snowmobile manufacturer, makes small jet airliners. I like smaller jets. Airplanes are inherently dangerous. If you are carrying your eggs in baskets, it's better to have many small baskets rather than one large one. That way if you drop one basket, you don't break all your eggs. Yes, I know there are statistics, and flying is safer than driving, but airliners like the Airbus 380 just strike me as too big.
    I don't feel that way about the Boeing 747 though. Probably has something to do with my being human, or American.
