Is this the 747 you can see on Top Gear? I'd like to see 2 of those pods under each wing giving 8 engines. Very nice photo

Great shot of the movie classic! This is also the location of British comedy/motoring show Top Gear!

To all car-lovers: Dunsfold is the place where Top Gear shooting is taking place, and the plane is adjacent to the airfield which serves as the Top Gear Track. Just in case you wondered.

Why are the engines like that?

Movie makers are creative but not too realistic. Who would put a fuel pod on an engine pylon on a commercial jet?

If they didn't put the fuel pod there, the engine pylons would look odd. I guess that's why.

Yes, this is the Boeing B747 in the Top Gear test track, once towed by Jeremy Clarkson by a tractor and once used by James May in the TV show "James May's 20th Century".
