I was watching a show and saw this plane and I was wondering if anyone would know what it is?

Plane front view

For context, it was on the show "Arrow" and the characters were flying to a fictitious island in the North China sea. From the scene I could see 2 pilot seats and some room for maybe 2 more riders in the cockpit.

The plane seemed mid to small for such a plane and the wing has a prop on each side and then some sort of attachment near the end of each wing.

Cockpit view

Thanks for reading and for any ideas on what model it os, or where I could do some furhter research.

Regards, -Brian

    $\begingroup$ The "some sort of attachment near the end of each wing" are 450 gallon (1700 L) external fuel tanks. $\endgroup$ Aug 3 at 13:21

    $\begingroup$ The cockpit doesn't match the exterior shot: I'm not sure exactly what they used to film the interior, but it's not a C-123. I suspect it may be a mockup (a set - not even a simulator) but I could be wrong. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @TypeIA: Yeah, I think it might be a Boeing 737, actually. Wikipedia has a C-123 cockpit photo $\endgroup$ Aug 3 at 14:55

    $\begingroup$ The cockpit picture shows sort of a 737 flight deck. Someone else may see more, but on first looks, the displays are configured the wrong way round - the primary flight display ("artificial horizon" and lots of other stuff) should be outboard, while the nav display ("map") should be inboard on each side. Or am I confused now? $\endgroup$ Aug 3 at 19:52

Fairchild C-123 Provider. Also appears in "Air America" (1990) and "Con Air" (1997).

  • $\begingroup$ The type also appears in "Outbreak" (1995) as the bomber that's sent to bomb Cedar Creek. I'm not sure it's the same airframe. $\endgroup$
