Charter provider ExcelAire has added another Embraer Legacy 600, bringing to three the Long Island, N.Y.-based company’s fleet of the Brazilian-built jets in service. Not included in that total is N600XL, the Legacy that survived the September 2006 midair that destroyed a Gol Airlines 737 over the Brazilian jungle. According to ExcelAire, that airplane–which was never added to the company’s charter certificate–remains at the Brazilian military airstrip where it landed after the collision, awaiting further assessment regarding its airworthiness.
