Scientists Reveal Whether Stunts In Spectre Can Be Done In Real Life

by | Nov 1, 2015

The twenty-fourth Bond film, Spectre, starring Daniel Craig, released its trailer earlier this year and it had everyone talking when a helicopter, presumably with Bond in the cockpit, performs a 350 corkscrew stunt. This had many wondering…is this stunt actually something that can be done in real life?

The answer is yes. Scientists and helicopter pilot Mike Buckley from the British Airline Pilots Association weighs in on this saying that it is possible to fly a helicopter upside down, however, only for a short period of time.

“Helicopter pilots are highly trained and this footage appears to be a Bo105 undertaking a very skilled maneuver with an expert pilot at the controls,” he says. Bond, being Bond, has obviously undergone rigorous training.

Watch the trailer below.
