Watch how FF7 dropped real cars out of a plane

“We’re freefalling at 130 or 140mph… these cars have a mind of their own, they’re doing whatever they feel like.” So says Luke Aikins, an aerial camera flyer on Fast & Furious 7.

He’s one of five camera guys who jumped out of a plane to film actual cars - well, shells - being rolled out of a C-130 cargo plane. Yep, that stunt was real.

In this newly released behind-the-scenes clip from the upcoming Fast & Furious 7 movie, we see how the film makers used an actual cargo plane, actual cars, a helicopter to capture it and some men with cameras freefalling, to capture a rather audacious stunt. That’s a lot of metal and flesh in the air, falling together. Wowser.

Have a watch of the clip above, and stay tuned - we’ll have much, much more from the new FF7 film coming soon. From a simple drag race in a bright orange Supra, to throwing real cars out of a cargo plane - whatever will they think of next?
