BBC News - Bust Highland Airways' plane in new Batman film The Dark Knight Rises (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-18114689)

Nice looking learjet... not.

And I want to meet this stunt pilot that was landing a jet at Fieshy it will the pilot with the balls the size of elephants. The F406 had gone in a few times and apparently it was a bit bum twitching on the way out.

It would appear to be an editorial problem
Everything points to the main aircraft being that Bandeirante

The nose sections are interesting - is that red & white one the remains of an RAF or RN Jetstream? If you look the radar has been removed and replaced with a nosecone in the same livery as that Jetstream in the BBC photo
Maybe thats all they wanted? Presumably the radar would have been removed before the bird was sold?
It looks like the other Jetstream nose section may also be in the same colours though its hard to be sure

" Therefore, when I read articles about things I know little of, are they wrong too?"
We've had similar conversations and I fear you're right. :p
