Hello. I am trying to identify an aircraft that is covered by a tarpaulin. I have included photos of the aircraft from several angles. In the bottom picture I believe there are two of the same aircraft, although there could be differences. Can anyone identify what the aircraft is? Thank you.

I was going to suggest Cessna Dragonfly, but I'm not sure so sure.

I think Jetstreams.......the shape looks right and I thought that before I saw the one with red which certainly looks like RAF training livery, the red and white. However the nose cone looks more like an Air Atlantique livery.

Where did you see them ?

Thank you cpd and dendrobatid. I believe the aircraft is an Embraer EMB 110 Bandeirante.

The pictures are from a location where a stunt sequence for the new Batman movie is being filmed.

There was a "complete" airworthy Bandeirante, ZS-NVB, in a very similar colour scheme at Inverness Airport earlier this week. This would tie-in with these cockpit sections you've photographed.

I don't think they are Bandeirantes. As you can see on the frontal shot, there are two lines straight back from the nosecone. The lines on the Bandeirante are not straight.

Then also, one can see traces of a wiperarm (as on the Jetstream) peeking out at the bottom of the tarp.
(The Bandeirante wipers are hinged at the top.)

Now comes the confusing thing: The windshield-frame does not fit any of the candidates.....

(maybe they really are wellmade movieprops?)

The ex Highland Airways Jetstreams that had been stored at Inverness were recently sold & broken up.
Rumour was they were going to be used as movie props.

"The Dark Knight Rises" is partially shot at Inverness. Those in the photo are clearly Jetstreams but the movie doesn't come out until next year to see if they are in it.

ZS-NVB

I agree, the one closest (with red) looks like a Scottish Aviation HP-137 Jetstream T1, as to which one, impossible to tell.

The first thing that came to my mind when looking at the front view of the grey colour nose was a Cessna Citation (Either CJ? or encore etc).

I'm not so sure when looking at the side on though.

Just found this link;

http://forum.keypublishing.co.uk/showthread.php?t=109077

It seems they were looking specifically for two Jetstreams 31's for filming, with the aim to provide 4 airframes all together. From reading the link, Pinewood already have xx500 so that would probably be the fuselage with the red. As for the grey mysterious fuselage, likely another Jetstream 31 fuselage repainted into colours for the Batman film. From what I gather Pinewood's 3 other Jetstream 31's fuselages are G-EEST, G-EADY or G-UIST... so one of these.
