When Cars Fly: Extreme Skydiving Car Stunt

Andrew ReveszBy Andrew Revesz

Ever wondered what it would be like to drive a car in freefall? Thanks to Konstantine Petrijcuks, Steve Curtis and their crew, this video shows exactly what happens when you load a car with your friends and send it out the back of a skyvan over Area 51 in Arizona. Now that’s what I call a “joy ride” in a skydiving car!

A freefalling car is very unpredictable, so the team put a lot of prep work into making this stunt as safe as possible. They customized two cars for the stunt by removing the drivetrain, all the fluids, stripped off the roof and anything else that could’ve been an issue in freefall, including a panel on the underbody to try to make the car more aerodynamic in the sky.

This is one video you don’t want to miss.
