Plane in the hanger looked like a BAe 146.

It looks like, they only operate A320, so maybe the video was not even done in Iceland.

To me, the aircraft looked an A320 family ...

At one point it looks like several planes in the hangar; one has a prop. Could have been filmed anywhere.

You can see from 0:34-0:36 and art 0:38 that 1)The nose gear is far too short to belong to an A320 and 2) The aircraft has a high wing with a jet on it. The shape of that jet, combined with other small clues, makes me think that it is a 146 or Avro RJ. But the video is put together in such a way that it is very difficult to tell, so credit to the video production team for that. WOW likely didn't want to take one of their own aircraft out of service to shoot the video, when in the end it would have been rather unnecessary.

you're right ... my bad. missed the initial shots of the high wing and the undercarriage area ... definitely Avro or 146. But the Tom Brady look-alike pilot seems mysterious to me. Would he really do that?

Hello all,

I enjoyed the iconic music track in this production with the crew so seriously walking to do their duty. I thought all the persons portrayed had a younger, get it done quality, although the piano player was clearly not younger. Also the production accomplished the hangar look filled with aircraft, but disguising it enough that one can't tell, other that the small recip, if they were the company's aircraft. I for one would love to see the pilot "launch" through that barely open hangar door. It would have brought Goose back from the dead. Overall, I feel it will work for them...

The engine nacelle, which best shots are at the beginning, do not indicate to me an Avro RJ. It rather looks like the engine of an An-148. Definitely a high wing aircraft. Anyhow, great commercial.
