We reported their bad news, so it seems fair to report their good news.

Japan's Mitsubishi Aircraft suffered a little embarrassment yesterday when a showpiece flying display was cancelled.

The company's much-anticipated (and long-delayed) MRJ90 suffered damage caused by a tow truck at the Farnborough Airshow.

It's still unclear exactly what damage was caused, but Mitsubishi has flown in some spare parts overnight.

The company promises that Japan's first passenger plane since the 1960s will be ready to wow the Farnborough crowds later on Wednesday.

Now, that's what you call just-in-time delivery.
