I photographed this a/c this morning...gorgeous bird. Reg number is N52OE. The problem is that it's not listed in the FAA registry. If you google it, nothing pops up. I know what kind of a/c it is...I can't figure out why it's not in the registry...btw, I haven't fixed the photo in Photoshop yet...that's why it looks a bit unpolished.

Yep, no U.S. registration will have an "Oh" as in O or an "Eye" as in I in the call sign......so putting the call sign is as N Five Two Zero Echo, you'll find it is an ExxonMobil aircraft, one of many they have.

Something else I might have suggested is that occasionally the '0' in the standard FAA registration font can be confused with a 'D' if you're viewing it from a distance.

If you gave it the same seat pitch, number of seats, substandard seating, and baby overhead bins as its cousin, I assure you it would make make for one crappy ride   Oh, and then fly it under contract for someone else, and stick some fresh graudates from _____ (fill in the blank: ERAU, UND, etc) in the cockpit, severely underpaid, and same with the flight attendant...well, you get the picture...

Somehow, though, I don't think that that's how ExxonMobil flies N520E

+1.

If you've seen the two side by side, there's no comparison.

Just about the only thing the RJ and Global have in common is that they come from the same manufacturer.

A few reasons the Global is far superior: Wildly different wing design with slats (typical V1 near 100kts...or less), Rolls Royce/BMW engines at 14750 lbs thrust each, service ceiling FL510, cruise M85, much shorter runway requirements even at 98,000 lbs, and on and on. The Global can depart a 5500' runway in California and fly non-stop to London.
