take a look at the two pictures above. the first EMB has something added onto the bottom of the fuselage, a fairing of some kind. the second does not. anyone know what that is and what it's there for? is it just fuel?

My guess is this: being that the airplane on the left is a Legacy, and the one on the right is an ERJ -135LR, I would have to say that the difference is a fuel tank or added avionics, since it is a military aircraft.
The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.
