I'm not sure where to post this but thought people on this forum would be the most knowledgeable!
I was watching a BBC news video clip about a stowaway who fell out of an aircraft a few days ago. The reporter demonstrated how he was able to climb up into the landing gear and hide. Tragically, it did not end well for the stowaway.
The aircraft that was used in the demonstration wasn't one I recognise: I only have a passing interest in aircraft, so I thought I'd ask the experts!
The aeroplane resembled a 747 - it had 2 passenger decks, but not a full upper deck. However, what struck me were the engines. There were 4 engines, but two engines per nacelle (like those on a B-52). The engines appeared to be quite modern in design (not that I know about these things).

Aeroplane can be seen at 5.11-5.13 and 5.22-5.31
Is it a real commercial plane, or some sort of mock up?
Would be great if someone could let me know what it is! It been annoying me for days!
I can send screen grabs if required!
