There is a band call The Do, in one of their videos there is a plane with a strange configuration of turbines, it looks like a version of a 747.

You can find the video on Youtube "The Dø - Despair, Hangover & Ecstasy"

Does anyone know what plane it is?

This looks like G-BDXJ, a modified 747 that was also featured in James Bond Casino Royale as well as other movies.

Edit: The linked wikipedia page confirms this:

It was used as a prop in the music video of The Dø song "Despair, Hangover & Ecstasy"

It is indeed a modified 747, based at Duxford and parked next to the "Top Gear" test track.

  • $\begingroup$ Not Duxford, it's at Dunsfold. $\endgroup$ – Graham Tanner Feb 5 '19 at 16:47
