De Havilland Canada DHC-32 Orion

With the establishment of the Lagrange Space Stations in 2146 the need arose for fast and cheap transports to fly people and light freight to and from the stations.

The De Havilland Canada factory surprised everybody with its revolutionbary design for the DHC-32 Orion liner.

Using Trans Canada Air Lines as its launch customer the Orion quickly became the standard space transport for most of the airlines flying to the space stations.

It outperformed both the Boeing 949 Saturn and the Airbus A621 by a wide margin. Because of the lack of success or its spaceliner the Airbus consortium fell apart in 2149.
