Seen briefly in supporting footage.
Used to fly a terrorist away at the end of Series 2 Episode 1.
Registration G-MOMO, c/n 11154.
Archival footage of Air Force One is used to show President Bush landing on Britain. Seen in Series Two Episode Six.
Archival footage of the Marine One Helicopter supposedly dropping off the President at Checkers. Seen in Series Two Episode Six.
These jets are scrambled to attack a Microlight due to fears that it is being flown by a terrorist. The jets are named in the script as Harriers. Factually inaccurate, as the Harrier is a strike aircraft, not an air interdiction aircraft.
Pegasus Quantum 15
This microlight is caught in restricted airspace above Checkers and the Harriers are scrambled to attack it. However, it is soon realised that it was blown off course by the wind.
First helicopter is used to transport Special Forces in 2.9.
At the end of Series Two when the character Tom Quinn disappears into the sea this police helicopter is shown flying over the North Sea.
Registration G-BYPA, c/n 5348. Used a few times in Series Three by main characters.
In Episode 2 of Series 3 It is used to stop Tom Quinn's Lexus when he kidnaps an undercover agent.
In Episode 10 of Series 3 it is used again by Adam Carter when he flies into the house where his wife is being held hostage.
G-BYPA appears again in episodes 4 and 8 of Series 4.
A Boeing Chinook is shown briefly flying above in one scene of Episode 3.09.
Another AS355 is used in Series Four at various points by the CIA when they appear. Registration G-JETU, c/n 5450 built in 1990. Same aircraft in other works at IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft.
In Episode 2 it is used to fly away a suspect.
And again in Episode 9 it is seen when they are trying to extradite to snatch a British citizen and MI5 stop them.
Registration G-SPUR, c/n 550-0714 built in 1992.
Used by Fiona Carter's ex-husband in Episode 7 of this series.
In Episode Nine a terrorist tries to shoot down an airliner. In the scene this aircraft is shown apparently flying above.
This second airliner is the one the terrorist actually targets with the surface to air missile.
This airliner is seen in Episodes 5.01 and 5.02 when the air traffic control system is hacked so that two planes are taken off the system in an attempt to precipitate an air crash over London. It is most likely library footage and could well be one of the aircraft seen in 4.09.
In episode 6.01 this aircraft is shown taking off when Adam Carter travels to Iran.
Seen in Episode 6.03 this is supposedly a Cargo Plane that crashes by a US airbase. It is likely the footage is reused from another film or series or is CGI and indeed the plane seen crashing may is different to the one seen in the air.
This helicopter is also used in 6.03 when Adam Carter flies to the Airbase where the plane is downed.
The majority of episode 6.06 is set aboard this flight flown by the fictional British Intercontinental Airways. It is headed for Iran and someone aboard is carrying triggers for nuclear weapons. Two different models are seen here.
Library footage of British Airways jet shown in Episode 10 of Series Six.
This police helicopter is seen flying over the BBC television studios ahead of a 'Question Time' style program.
This fighter jet is seen in episode 7.06 supposedly used by the Israeli military.
When corrupt Russian agents kidnap Harry in 8.01 they use this helicopter to fly him to the mansion where he is to be held.
Registration G-TOPC, c/n 5313.
Seen in the opening of 8.08, this is supposed to be flying on and off a Pakistani Navy ship. In reality, it's an American Iwo Jima-class amphibious assault ship.

Registration G-JBBZ, c/n 3580 built in 2002.

Registration G-BPRI, c/n 5181 built in 1982.
Seen at the airport in 10.03. Looks like Stansted Airport but image appears to have been manipulated for some reason as the control tower and buildings are all slightly out of place. Aircraft are, from the top: Boeing 767-34AF/ER of UPS Airlines, Airbus A300B4-203/F of TNT Airways, Boeing 737-36N of Jet2.com and an Airbus A320-232 of Cyprus Airways.
