Embraer EMB 110

The Embraer EMB 110 Bandeirante was a plane designed to carry twenty passengers, generally for military and civil duties. The plane was given the name "Bandeirante" by Max Holste, and is Portuguese for "Pioneer." The plane was first flown in October of 1968, and it remains an active member of the Brazilian Air Force; equipped with all of the modern avionics equipment.

The Bandeirante is shown in this image flying high above a tropical coastline. The cleanliness of the plane, as well as the richness of the color behind it, promotes the aircraft as luxurious. The planes are notorious for their slow flying-speeds and bumpy rides through turbulence, though the Brazilian Air Force maintains an active force of ninety-six of the EMB 110's.
