Although a strike last summer at Learjet facilities in Wichita held down aircraft deliveries in the third quarter of this year, Bombardier reported that it delivered 143 business jets in the first nine months of its fiscal year ending October 31, compared with 132 in the corresponding nine months in 2005. Bombardier said it received orders for 157 business jets in the first nine months of last year versus 148 in the same period the previous year.
