Bombardier Global 5000

    To create a faster and smaller version of its Global Express ultralong-range jet, Bombardier cut two feet out of the fuselage for the Global 5000 design but kept the same powerful Rolls-Royce engines. The result is an airplane with power to spare for climbs and quick takeoffs from short runways. Inside the cabin, the passenger space is only 10 inches shorter—the rest of the lost length was taken from the galley and a crew rest area. Intercontinental range reaches from New York to Moscow nonstop in nine and a half hours.
