Nice surprise, but I wish EMB had waited for the paint job first. .

Congrats to them, though!  Smile

Probably due to the forward-folding landing gear (?).

It´s the new ERJ-005 Big grin

Looks great, nice to see Embraer is in an excellent shape and doing excellent planes.

That looks a lot sexier than the Mustang and CJ1!

Does it have thrust reversers?

It's a nice plane, but it kind of looks like the Eclipse 500.

I really don't see that much of a similarity. The Eclipse's fuselage is totally different than most aircraft, while the Phenom is more "standard" looking.

Are those heated leading edges I see as opposed to pneumatic boots?

I don't see the resemblance to the Eclipse at all. Although it does look alot like a further-shrunken ERJ-135. IMHO, it's unmistakably Embraer... and that's a good thing.

boots

Pnuematicly expanding leading edge "ballon" like devices that will cause ice to crack off when they "inflate", just an anti ice device.

Oh ok, thanks for the clarification. I've seen videos of that before.
