The opening scene of "The Dark Knight Rises" takes place onboard a plane that is supposed to belong to the CIA. The plane is a twin prop with low wings. It is later pursued by a C-130. Does anyone know what model of aircraft was used? For those who haven't seen the movie (which I highly recommend you see), there is a shot of the aircraft in the YouTube video: http://www.azcentral.com/members/Blog/azdc/166845 at the :15 mark. It is the aircraft in front of the C-130. Thanks for the help!

I had it as an EMB-110 when I saw the movie in the theatre.

Happened to watch some of the making videos of the movie some time back in youtube itself. The stunts in the whole sequence was performed in real time - nothing morphed or photoshopped or whatever.

Should appreciate Nolan to find a team which works so hard ..

It's a South African EMB-110, reg ZS-NVB. A prop double was also made. Flight scenes from the beginning of the film were filmed near Inverness in Scotland.

Additional airport scenes (namely Selina Kyle trying to catch a flight) were filmed at in the UK at (IIRC) Stansted Airport. Watch out for the orange tail of an EasyJet Airbus taxiing past in the background.

All that Delta signage wasn't fooling anyone...

Ah, yes, that makes sense. I thought it was a DC-3 or King Air (but looking back at it, I don't know why I thought it was a DC-3, and I'm not sure why I never considered an Embraer). Thanks for the help and insight, everyone!

The signage sure fooled me (although I didn't really take a guess at what airport they used for filming).
