Came across this site recently - IMPDb.org. Appears to be a decent attempt at creating a substantial database of aircraft in movies/tv shows etc.

In particular they have a list of unidentified aircraft, most of which are probably identified pretty easily, but I was stumped on the one in Live Free or Die Hard. Scoured as many types of VLJs i could think of but couldn't find any that match - any ideas?

That was a thought at one point but the engines are different, the horizontal stabilizer's in the wrong place and the vertical stabilizer joins differently to the fuselage.

I'm beginning to think its a model.

Granted the gear doors are different and the cruciform tail seems higher up

The Falcon 10 photo has the third from the rear fuselage window at the wing leading edge to fuselage intersection. In other words there are two windows over the wing. The OP's photo only has one window aft of the wing leading edge/fuselage intersection.

We have our winner - someone posted on the site it was a Fox Jet, little bit of research:

Is actually a full scale mock up of originally designed and built by Tony Fox in 1976.
