The second protoype of the EMBRAER Regional Jet, the EMB-145,
made recently its maiden flight (successfully). Well, maybe
everybody knows, but just in case:

- it's a low wing, T-shaped tail a/c, with 2 "rear" turbofans;
  it uses the the fuselage of the EMB-130 Brasilia, but
  stretched; it looks beautiful;

Does anybody have more technical info?
Thanks,
