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.

In your pictures the one on the left is a Legacy which like the EMB-145 XLR has a additional center fuel tank. Embraer added a larger bumper on the underside to help protect the tank in case of a wheels up landing situation:

A COEX 145XLR and a private Legacy.

As for the Embraer on the right it must be a stock 135 which doesn't have a center fuel tank and only has a small bumper which is in the same location but much smaller:

A BA 145, you can see the small bumper between the main landing gear just slightly aft of the lower beacon.
