Name this airplane

This aircraft showed up in the movie "Golda". It was a speedbump in an otherwise accurate and good war movie.

Hi,

I think it resides at some old airbase in England and shows up in alot of movies at times.  I believe it was in Casino Royale as the Skyfleet S570 (with some post filming CGI added, if I recall correctly).  I've also seen it on"Primeval" and I think "Top Gear" once.

Regards

Pat

Am I to understand this was a movie prop and not an actual funtioning aircraft?

Hi,

I think from the info on the links provided, the planewas at one time a functioning 747, but that after being taken out of service it has been used for training and as a movie/TV prop (with fake "mockup" engines).

It was a functioning aircraft, with a British registration number of G-BDXJ.  Had the standard engine configuration of a 747 back then.
