Baby You can Drive my Car

What happens if you throw a car out of a Skyvan?

When Cars Fly: Trump 2020

Have you ever thought to yourself: “I’d love to throw a car out of an airplane”?

… No?

Well these guys did.

It was Konstantin Petrijcuk’s dream to huck a car out of a airplane since he first started skydiving 10 years ago. This August, he and his friends made that dream a reality. With the help of Steve Curtis, professional skydiver/stunt coordinator, this rowdy crew traveled to Arizona’s Area 51 to throw not one, but two cars out of an airplane. Not only that, they rode inside the cars!

This is extremely dangerous since the behavior of a car in freefall is completely unpredictable. There were some close calls, along with some short term injuries, but all in all it was a safe and successful mission.

“It was like riding a roller coaster on an invisible track!”

Behind the Scenes

The video below takes a look at the characters, how the stunt was done and what problems were encountered along the way. Choosing and doing up the car, planning the impact point, risk assessment, the rocket jump – and Showtime!

The team has some big projects coming up, so tune into their new Facebook page:
