NORTH BAY, Ont. - Bombardier Inc. (TSX:BBD.B) has made its first U.S. sale of a Bombardier 415 water bomber, an amphibious plane used in Canada and other countries to fight forest fires.
Although the first Bombardier 415 was delivered nearly 20 years ago, this is the first to be purchased by a U.S. buyer — a partnership led by Tenax Aerospace LLC, under contract to the U.S. Forest Service.
The plane, which is assembled in North Bay, Ont., has a list price of US$34.5 million.
