Mitsubishi Heavy Industries recently joined the wing to the fuselage of their MRJ regional jet, and today released pictures of the aircraft with the PW1200G turbofans attached to the wings. The pictures show that the aircraft is externally completed. They are currently installing piping and wiring in preparation for the first flight in the second quarter of 2015. The first ground test aircraft has already been rolled out.

No, both them and Kawasaki have been building aircraft for years. They license built both the F-15 and F-4, as well as indigenous patrol aircraft.

Not a plane historian but an interested party nonetheless

The Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation was established in 2008 to build the MRJ. During WWII Mitsubishi made dozens of different aircraft types.

Mitsubishi AIrcraft

Kawasaki Aerospace was established in 1918, and has built everything from target drones, to missiles, to aircraft. Their most recent aircraft include the C-2, and the P-1, as well as a proposed 100-150 passenger aircraft based on the P-1.

Yes and no. The Mitsubishi that made WWII fighters is no more. This company was founded specifically to make the MRJ in 2008.
