Bombardier uses basically the same airframe for the Bombardier Continental, Challenger 604, Special Edition, Global Express and the CRJ Series airliners; hence the similarity to the Global 5000 pictured.

Silly me, I forgot Bombardier and Canadair are basically the same company! What a beautiful aircraft though. One other question about this type of aircraft, has anyone else noticed on the CRJ's how low the windows in the cabin are? I heard a rumor that on the new models, the 700 series for example, that the windows are being raised higher. Is this true? I think the EMJ jet has higher windows than the CRJ. The CRJ is very difficult to look out of and observe other aircraft while you are taxiing, in my opinion.
