It is interesting that the chase plane was a CRJ 1000 painted in American Airlines livery. I wonder if that foreshadows a big order for CSeries from American Airlines is in the works?

Are you sure that it was a CRJ-1000? American does not currently operate the CRJ-1000. Perhaps it was a CRJ-900 or it might be that American is soon to take delivery of a CRJ-1000?

It was a 900. My mistake. Still a curious choice for a chase plane

One of the Bombardier statements I read mentioned the chase plane being a 900 so I believe you're correct

Why would that be a duplicate even if it was posted 4 hours earlier?

Bombardier is in need of moral support and financial support
from all Canadians. This is a manufacturer born and bred in
Canada, and we need to take a greater interest. Bombardier
could rank as one of the worlds best in the field of aviation.
Now is the time to buy their shares. This CS series is going
to make them a lot of money.

Bombardier make some great aircraft, the old Dash 8 series is a good reliable, relatively fast & comfortable workhorse for the shorter milk run type routes.
