I don't think it was a real modified aircraft, rather a CGI mockup. What they can do with CGI and PhotoShop is simply amazing.
Look at the photo...it's real.
|Quoting AvroArrow (Reply 6):|
Real or not it looks pretty darned cool.
|Quoting scouseflyer (Reply 9):|
This movie plane was actually modified to look like this but obviously couldn't fly!
|Quoting atcsundevil (Reply 13):|
I noticed in an episode a few weeks ago (from the new series) during a power lap that R1 was open with air stairs pulled up -- I guess it does more than just sit there and look pretty (well...different, at least).
|Quoting BMI727 (Reply 10):|
That plane is actually sitting at the Dunsfold Aerodrome and can often be seen in the background of Top Gear episodes. I believe it was also featured in a Volkswagen Toureg commercial.
|Quoting Semaex (Reply 17):|
Does anyone have a picture of this same 737 in the same spot un-CGI'd ?
|Quoting JRowson (Reply 15):|
I think the cabin interior was used to shoot scenes for "Come fly with me" (the David Walliams/Matt Lucas comedy reality show) as I watched the "making of" and it appears that they were at Dunsfold.
|Quoting ghifty (Reply 18):|
Doubtful. The plane is completely de-regged so it'd be hard to figure out exactly which one/where it is.
|Quoting fly4film (Reply 8):|
They ended up choosing this 737. (registration number N801TJ I believe)
|Quoting beardown91737 (Reply 26):|
but the V-tail is much less material than the Horizontal and Vertical Stabilizers on the normal 734
|Quoting rampart (Reply 28):|
Note to future livery designers: v-tails don't offer much space for logos or other corporate identification, unless looking up obliquely (on the ground or in flight).
