Canadair Challenger: A Widebody Pioneer

The CL-600, represented here by the second prototype, marked a major step in executive aircraft development with its wide-body cabin greatly appreciated by passengers who could stand up inside. The type not only laid the foundations for a business jet dynasty now headed by the majestic Global 8000 but also spawned a major airliner family. © Canadair
