The shot in Furious 7 where Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and Co. drop themselves out of a plane while inside cars with parachutes is already part of Fast & Furious lore. The Furious 7 car jump scene we’re gonna call it.
I didn’t think about how they filmed it at the time. I just sort of assumed, like everything, it was some serious CGI work.
But nope. The Fast & Furious crew don’t fuck around. They dropped actual cars out of an actual C-130 cargo plane, with sky divers jumping along to film, and a helicopter watching from above.
