The CL600 to CRJ1000 huge stretch again says that rear engines may make for bigger stretches.
Any clever explanation why this is so? Is it so?

Trauha, your guesses were damn good!
731 to 739 is probably a 55% difference
the DC9-10 to MD90 is probably a 43% difference
The 747SP to 748 probably a 36% difference.
Aware of this is why I put the inverted commas around stretch: 'stretch'.
You are right - DIFFERENCE would have been a better word.
Which fuselages have been shrunk? Is the 747 the only one?
Is the DC9-10 -> MD90-30 (assuming these the shortest and longest variants) a longer proportional length difference
(and in absolute feet length terms),
than the original Boeing 737 -> 737-900?
Or is the longest 'stretch' maybe the 747 SP to the 747-800?
Get a decibel meter. I measure noise levels on every flight I take with a dB meter.
A lot of seats are subject to amounts of noise that would be illegal in a Scandinavian work place for instance.
