Mitsubishi jet touches down in US for further testing

The Mitsubishi Regional Jet has arrived in the U.S. for further testing.

TOKYO -- Mitsubishi Aircraft's homegrown passenger jet is a step closer to commercial operations, arriving in the U.S. for extensive flight testing after a month of delays.

The first Mitsubishi Regional Jet took off Monday from Aichi Prefecture's Nagoya Airport, arriving Wednesday evening local time at Moses Lake in Washington state following stopovers in Russia and the U.S. state of Alaska. Two attempts to make the trip in August were called off due to malfunctioning air-control sensors.
