VIDEO: Behind the Scenes of the Furious 7 Plane Drop Stunt
When the first trailer for the seventh film in the Fast and Furious saga, Furious 7, hit the Web back in November, one of the questions a lot of viewers were asking is whether or not the production team really parachuted those cars out of the cargo plane. As it turns out, the answer is, rather remarkably, yes and, as you can see in the behind-the-scenes video above, it involved a lot of precision planning and execution to get the necessary footage. So when you’re watching Furious 7 (which will be in theaters April 3rd) and that Jeep, Camaro, WRXand other rides make their descent to earth, know that while the actors may not have been inside, those automobiles really were skydiving. It’s nice to know that CGI hasn’t completely taken over modern action movie making.
