The plane is built in Brazil (the "jungle"). That's about it.

The runway there is almost 6000', musta been a really late touchdown.

In regards to the "Jungle Jet" nic name for the ERJ-145, I think its a way of politly deaming the jet inferior by comparing its level level of quality sophistication to things made by the primitive people in the jungle, but thats just my opinion.

Though I agree the ERJ sittin' there with things growing on it makes me think "Jungle Jet"....
