Mitsubishi hopes jet production will take-off

One of the latest new plane makers hoping to enter the regional jet market has been talking about its ambitions.

The Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation of Japan has told the BBC that it believes it can sell a thousand jets, despite the fact it has not taken to the air.

It is entering a market that the Chinese, the Russians and Canadian makers all hope to crack with new designs for more efficient, narrow-bodied planes.
