Embraer is so proud of its $18.4 million Legacy 500 business jet that it made a six-minute Hollywood-style promotional video to promote it. If you want to make big bucks you gotta spend big. Apparently the Mach 0.82 Legacy 500 can travel through space (not) and carries a bluish glow that could be from re-entry (not). It can carry eight passengers 2,800 nm or four passengers for 3,000 nm. On shorter flights it can carry 12 passengers.

Embraer is estimated to have had 23 deliveries in the second quarter, compared to¬†40 for the second quarter of 2010, and eight in the first quarter, compared to 20 for the same period in 2010.
