These jets are scrambled to attack a Microlight due to fears that it is being flown by a terrorist. The jets are named in the script as Harriers. Factually inaccurate, as the Harrier is a strike aircraft, not an air interdiction aircraft.

Boeing 747

Seen in Episode 6.03 this is supposedly a Cargo Plane that crashes by a US airbase. It is likely the footage is reused from another film or series or is CGI and indeed the plane seen crashing may is different to the one seen in the air.
