Spotting Jet Airliners with 2-Engines on Fuselage


The airliner has two engines at the rear of the aircraft ... what is it ?

If the airliner has two engines mounted on the side of the rear fuselage, then it is probably a Boeing 717, MD-80 variant, a Bombardier CRJ jet airliner or Embraer ERJ jet airliner.
