Three more high-resolution images of AG600 airframe No. 3 (1003). It's expected to make its first flight next year.

Following the roll-out of the two new AG-600 prototypes no. 1003 & 9008 they appear to be slightly different to the first one no. 1001; and my feeling tells me that it is not only the larger and different radome. So, what else?

The fuselage seems bulged the MLG fairings ...

I wish the angles were precisely the same so an accurate comparison could be made...

But the fuselage does seem to have a different cross-section. The upper half of the fuselage now appears slightly more bulbous, resulting in a slight crease running from the front to the main landing gears fairings. Also, there is now a bigger gap between the wingbox and the MLG fairings, and the flank window/porthole types and their arrangement have been changed too.

Also, there are now new large protrusions on the underside of the wings.

The cockpit seem to have moved a bit aft and raised.
