CRJ-200s are underrated.

Who's going to buy the new Microsoft Flight Simulator in 2020? I have four hundred hours on Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition (2006) which has the WORST multiplayer experience.

Planes, like bumblebees, are too big to fly, thus all the plane crashes...LOL!

On a more serious note, look at how fast we went from slow flimsy biplanes to jet aircraft and even rocketplanes.  It would be fun to find out what secret aircraft we have not revealed.

CRJ-200s are underrated.

In the way that stepping on a pull tab while barefoot – which hasn't happened to anyone in about 35 years – is underrated. I've heard from pilots that the CRJ-200 is like a little sports car, but for the rest of us with a seat number, it's like being stowed in its trunk. For all that, it's great for one thing: getting you a small airport that you'd likely normally never get to go to unless it's your hometown airport. 

But it's fun seeing the scale of the really big ones (like this Antonov AN124-100), something that's not always easy to do while it's in flight.

B-29 and B-36.  Big versus Huge!

Airlines probably think that too. If only there was a way to eliminate the aisle and squeeze in a 5th seat to each row!
