Well the people in the UK might know what Top Gear is, it is a program on BBC 2 on Sundays about motoring (great program).
I watched last nights episode, this morning (recorded it) and it is filmed on a airfield in Guildford and I noticed that there was a 747 in the background, it had a blue tail and engines, white fuse and no titles.
1) does any body else watch and like the program
2) if you sore the episode, was there a 747 in the background.
3) any more info.
I think it might be this one,
(Sorry, I can't find the photos, of when they landed one on a very short runway.) Can someone help me to find them.

Do you mean the episode, where he flies the BBJ2 and compares it to a Nissan Micra! LOL. And in the end he comes up with the conclusion, that the Micra offers more value for money? If you mean that, I saw it, but dont remember a 747.

I watch Top Gear and I watched it last night, I also noticed the 747 in the background, looked like -200.
I'm just wandering if was perhaps one of the old Travel City planes that they first used leased from EAL ??
On a different note I was quite tempted by that puppy ! But I'd eventually take the car lol.
I hope in life i can work to live, not live to work

Quoting Atco2b (Reply 16): I got the strangest feeling its James May. Whenever Clarkson does his "And who did we give it to? THE STTTTIG...", May is never there...
Didnt he used to be a Touring Car Driver?
Not sure about that. Not hard to show a videotape of the lap.
It certainly used to be Perry McCarthy although heard as his identity was revealed (following the incident with the 1953 Duncan Hamilton Jaguar) he was replaced. From what I have heard now it isn't the same person every week.

Good show last night,
BUT what was Jeremy doing drowning a poor old Roller?!?!?! I'll never forgive him for that...
Anyway, that photo in "airplanepics" message says "to be scrapped". Maybe they'll have some fun with it before that happens. Knowing Jeremy he'll compare it with a Smart Car...or blow it up for no particular reason...or they'll get the Stig to drive it round the track...or maybe race it against an Aston DB9 to Sydney...
Anything can happen on that programme.
No way. James is sloooooow. He's always being mocked for it. I remember a couple of years back he had some kind of race with JC and lost because he was "listening to Radio 2 and smoking". Wogan is enough to slow anyone down I guess, hence is crappy time on the 'Star in a reasonable Priced Car' rankings.
