the small executive jet with 4 rear-mounted engines
It's the Lockheed Jetstar that you are referring to and yes I flew one for a couple of years. One of, if not, the best flying aircraft I have ever flown. But not the series flown in the movie, the one I flew was a 731 Jetstar, the 731 indicating the newer, more modern and more powerful engine modification.

But I wish I'd flown the one in the movie, all those women in the film.

By the way, it was a Lockheed demonstration crew that flew the Jetstar in the Bond movie. Lucky arseholes.
