London Oxford Airport welcomed the Embraer EMB-195 E2 ‘Profit Hunter’ Demonstrator on the evening of March 16. Showcasing its unique characteristics to land on shorter runways, it is the largest commercial airliner ever to land at Oxford Airport. During late 2010, Oxford Airport was a temporary home to an Embraer Lineage 1000 (a VIP version of the EJ-190 commercial variant).
Embraer’s 5,000 km range international demonstrator (registration PR-Z1Q) is on a private visit and will be at London Oxford Airport until March 19, before heading on to Cape Verde. The aircraft arrived from Larnaca International Airport in Cyprus (taking off just before the country closed the airport for international arrivals) touching down on Oxford’s 1,552m (5,092 ft.) runway at 19:15 hours local time.Email Post to a Friend
