They Strapped Parachutes On These Street Racers And Dropped Them Out Of a C-130

By now you’ve probably seen Fast and Furious 7.  The movie features two street racing vehicles dropped out of the C-130 Hercules.  Dropping vehicles safely is no simple task.  From the looks of the video, it required custom rigging on the vehicle and additional metal support structure around the vehicles to ensure that the cars maintained rigidity during the opening chute sequence.

Filming wasn’t easy.  The drop was filmed by five skydivers and two helicopters flying in formation.

Watch this video, shot by Universal Studios, to see how the pros did it.
