... they showed a landing shot from the underside of a 747, for no particular reason, as far as I could tell...
Pity, a great series up until this episode, but their lack of attention to detail spoilt it for me I'm afraid. Either they were just very sloppy, or more likely had to do it as cheaply as possible and so just scanned their VT archive for as much (albeit completely unrelated) footage as they could find.

Quoting Scouseflyer (Reply 5): I wonder if it was the Casino Royale 747 that they used that lives permanently at the airbase used by BBC2's Top Gear?
it most probably was. When they had landed you could see the registration of the aircraft, and it was the same reg as the Casino Royale aircraft, although this is a generic reg used for films, and has been used on more than one aircraft in the past.
I also love the fact that they struggled to get in touch with the aircraft to tell them to divert - why didnt they just phone up ATC! Also, "turn on your blootooth, and text 757" to set the bomb off....
