Watch How They Filmed Cars Parachuting From a Plane in Furious 7
14 Mars 2015 - Carbuzz
You can't use CGI for everything. Last week we were treated to a Furious 7 extended first look trailer, where the crew drove cars out of a plane and parachuted down to earth.
Now we’ve been given the chance to see just how that epic stunt was pulled off. While there’s some CGI involved - obviously the actors were never near the cars when they were pushed out of a C-130 cargo plane - the rest of the stunt is legit: A bunch of cars equipped with parachutes were actually chucked out of a plane followed by a skydiving film crew. That's just nuts.
While airborne, the crew captured the cars backing out of the plane and stayed with them as they parachuted to the ground.
