It's a ATR-72, made in France, a very common type used in Europe. Used is also a smaller one, the ATR 42. At the end of 2005 or beginning of 2006 Eurowings stopped using this plane and instead using Bae 146 by British Aerospace and CRJ-200 by Bombardier

The bump is the place of the rear landing gear.

The bump is the place of the rear landing gear.

The bump on the rear is not the rear landing gear. It's only aerodynamical.

Normaly in other planes, it is the place of the APU, but the ATRs have no one.

I mean the bump back under the wings. And I thaught it was that Spider meant. I don't see other bumps.
