Marvel have released this fascinating new look into just what went into creating the Air Force One explosion and Iron Man swooping in to rescue them. This behind the scenes featurette shows how originally it was all going to be done on green screen but Stunt Co-Ordinator Jeff Habberstad had other ideas bringing in the Red Bull skydiving team to create the sequence practically.

The featurette shows how they took 8 days to shoot the sequence hiding parachutes underneath the clothes, 62 aeroplane loads, 600 parachute jumps and a lot of filming!

Check out the featurette below. Iron Man 3 is released on DVD and Blu-ray September 9th.
