Shark Week may be over on the Discovery Channel but for the Brazilian aircraft manufacturer, Embraer, a hungry shark is still circling the water in the form of its new E190-E2 jet livery.
Sporting a nose that's realistically (and frighteningly) painted to look like a great white, complete with menacing teeth and a determined set of eyes, Embraer's demonstration jet recently touched down at the company's US headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to show off exactly why it's being called the E2 Profit Hunter.
We've written about this jet before after it completed its first revenue service for Norway's Widerøe airlines. And indeed, Embraer is rapidly racking up more orders for this newest installment of its commercial jets. (The airframer is also rolling out E195 and E175 E-2s.)
But being inside the E190-E2 show jet during a quick one-hour tour allowed an up close and personal chance to check out the different seat pitches, play around with the individual PSUs, assess the quietness of the Pratt and Whitney engines, ogle the avionics and take in some stunning scenery.
