In Airliners World (The Magazine), all the Dash 8's (Q300-400) are refered to as Bombardier Dash 8, but on A.net I can't find one Dash 8 made by Bombardier. I though it was De Havilland Canada who made the Dash 8's. Have I missed something here?

I'm pretty sure Bombardier own DHC. Horizon's DHC-8-Q400s are. Didn't they buy Lear too?

Bombardier own deHavilland Canada, Shorts and Lear. They were all bought to give Bombardier (Canadair) the technology to complete the global express program. Also, to get rid of some of the competition.

Yea, they were bought like 10+ years ago....beyond old news. When in the picture did Boeing own de Havilland..? Just before Bombardier..?

IIRC they are the third largest aircraft manufacturer in the world (after A & B of course).
The Challenger design was initially purchased under what was supposed to be a temporary arrangement with Learjet, after which marketing was to revert to Lear.



Can you hear me now?

I just re-checked my figures. For FY 2005:

Bombardier- 329 Airframes (CRJ, D8, Lears..etc)
Embraer- 141 Airframes (135/145/135BJ/170/190)
