Did You Know?


Normally aerial photography by sky divers is achieved by mounting a small lightweight camera onto the helmet of the diver. This is usually a 16mm camera but this lacked definition for a 35mm feature film such as Moonraker (1979). See more »

"Learning to Free Fall" is the primary name . . .

. . . of this 3 minute, 55.11-second short, which probably is the reason fewer than five people have found it to date on IMDb. (James Bond fans are a dedicated bunch, and this documentary short would have at least 40 or 50 formal ratings--plus who knows how many page views--if it were labeled the same as its in-film title card and DVD box listing, i.e.--LEARNING TO FREEFALL: SKY DIVING TEST FOOTAGE. Who wouldn't want to know about the first guy who tried to jump out of a airborne jet on purpose with NO VISIBLE PARACHUTE on his back? B.J. Worth and Jake Lombard are the "heroes" of a stunt NOT reproduced so far by the JACKASS crew. Their work is in support of the mid-opening-titles set piece at the beginning of MOONRAKER, the 11th Eon Company James Bond outing. (Actor Richard Kiel's "Jaws" character pushes Roger Moore as Agent 007 out of the small jet chute-less, so Bond needs to dive down to an earlier bad guy jumper and steal his chute in order to survive for the actual MOONRAKER space jaunt).
