Before you ask, and as crazy as it sounds, yes, it’s the real McCoy! Built by Boeing in 1985 G-BDXA “Spirit of Birmingham” served with British Airways before being purchased by us in 2005 and flown into Dunsfold.
She has a modern airline interior including First Class, Business Class and Economy seating – all in great condition. We can supply a range of different seats to suit your production: old, new, various colours and configurations and a choice of in-flight entertainment.
There is also a full and complete cockpit, with every instrument just as BA left it. In fact she’s still very much alive. Bring the power up and everything works from the major avionic items in the cockpit, the galleys, the air con right down to the ding dong of the public address system. The plane features a full size toilet set, a choice of seating arrangements and a snorkel lift is also available.
The aircraft is kept plain white with a blue tail providing an excellent blank canvas for detailing to your requirements. She’s stared in many adverts and TV productions. Westlife used her for a recent video shoot and 007 personally saved her from the bad guys during Casino Royale. Ever spotted the Jumbo in the background of Top Gear? Yep, that’s the one.
The Boeing 747 has featured in many feature films, television series, music videos and advertisements including:
Casino Royal – James Bond
The Day Of The Triffids – BBC One
Westlife’s official music video for ‘Home’
