Bombardier Inc's new CSeries jetliner landed successfully, ending the first flight in the company's$3.4 billion program to develop a new narrow-bodied plane. The CSeries touched down at an airfield beside Bombardier's factory, about 2-1/2 hours after taking off. With the new jet, the Montreal-based plane and train maker is attempting to break into the hyper-competitive larger aircraft segment currently dominated by Boeing Co and Airbus.
