Crowds gather to watch Bombardier's CSeries commercial jet take off on its maiden test flight Monday at the company's facility in Mirabel, Canada. The first 110- to 125-seat CS100 is slated to enter into service in about a year, barring any delays. Bombardier says the CSeries, designed to carry up to 149 passengers, will be the world's quietest commercial aircraft. It represents the company's attempt to break into the hyper-competitive aircraft segment ruled by Boeing and Airbus.
