Registration OE-BXT, c/n 4441 built in 1996.
This aircraft's exterior is painted as an Austrian Airlines DC-9-32 with registration OE-LBD, c/n 47524/632 built in 1971, which was the actual aircraft involved in Carlos the Jackal's 1975 siege of an OPEC meeting (picture here)...
...But in the cockpit we see that its actual registration is UR-CBY, making it a DC-9-51 with c/n 47773, built in 1978 and operated by UM Air.
We also see what seems to be archival footage of a different DC-9 taking off, as UR-CBY didn't have a black nose.
It is also portrayed by a CGI model when it lands in Tripoli, with the UR-CBY registration reversed.
Seen in the background.
A couple of business jets seen in the reflection on the terminal windows.
And a Boeing 737 or Airbus A320 taking off.
Registration F-BVGG, c/n 019 built in 1975. Given as footage of Air France Flight 139, which was hijacked by Palestinian and German revolutionaries on 27 June 1976 and forced to land at Entebbe Airport in Uganda. The hostages were separated into two groups and all non-Israelis were released and flown to Paris. The remaining hostages were later freed by Israeli commandos on 4 July 1976. The event is the subject of Raid on Entebbe.
Looks like the outer left JT-3D of a four engine airliner (DC-8 ? Boeing 707 ?).
In Middle East Airlines colors with the titles removed.
Registration OD-MAS, c/n 257115 built in 1980.
Probably a Gulfstream.
