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 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.
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.
Can you say 'Beer Can' without sounding like a Jamaican saying 'Bacon'?
