  1. Good Afternoon all! This is an old report that I have never posted but I am slowly going through all my pictures and seeing what ones I haven't done and now posting them! Hope you enjoy the pictures! A Boeing 747-200 which served with British Airways until 2002 as City of Birmingham, G-BDXJ, was purchased by a Film Company specialising in supplying aircraft for television and film work, and transferred to Dunsfold. It was modified and used for filming for the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale. Some of the scenes set at Miami International Airport were filmed at Dunsfold.Modifications to the aircraft include the removal of the normal Rolls Royce engines in separate nacelles and replacement with a single nacelle on each wing with two engines, similar to those fitted to aircraft such as the B-52 Stratofortress. Dummy drop tanks have been fitted where the outer engines would normally be fitted. The aircraft is not flyable at the present moment.The aircraft has also appeared in the background of numerous Science in Action and Top Gear episodes and directly in an episode where it is towed by a JCB Fastrac tractor. It was also towed by a Volkswagen Touareg in a 2006 Top Gear episode, the same year that the modified aircraft and Dunsfold Airfield were featured in a television advertisement filmed for the Volkswagen Touareg, demonstrating the vehicle’s towing ability. In 2008 it featured in an episode of Scrapheap Challenge in which contestants created machines to tow the aircraft.The airfield also found use when filming several scenes inside a plane for Come Fly with Me, starring Matt Lucas and David Walliams. In 2009 for major parts of Episode 4 of ITV Series Primeval featuring a Giganotosaurus, Dunsfold Airfield was used as the location for an unspecified London Airport
