Comair   Canadair CL-600-2D24 Regiuonal Jet CRJ900   N693CA          (c/n  15096)


                                     Now stretched to accomodate 80 passengers, the 900 series Bombardier regional Jet has little
                                     similarity to the original Canadair CL-600 Challenger business jet from which it was evolved. 
                                     Comair eventually acquired an astonishing 150+ of these Bombardier regional range airliners
                                     of various marques.   Ben Wang's nice shot above was taken at Ft.Lauderdale-Hollywood
                                     International Airport in January 2008 as this dash 900 was departing on a flight back to hub
                                     headquarters, Cincinnati's Covington Airport.   Comair continues (2008) to provide regional
                                     service for its parent, Delta Air Lines and, whenever I fly out of my own home port of Raleigh/
                                     Durham (RDU) on Delta, it is invariably a Comair CRJ that I board.
