    Does anybody know the type of aircraft that is shown in the background on the test track we see on TV. It looks like a Boeing 747 but the engine config is two engines hanging from the one support on each wing. Any info appreciated and tks in advance.

    It's a Boeing 747-200 but it is actually a movie prop. I don't think there is a plane with engines mounted like that. It was modified and used in Casino Royale too
