This reminds me of the story I read years ago about MG trying to film an ad 
just like this one.  They had a problem, though.  When the car went out of 
the back of the cargo aircraft the pilot-chute deployed well, stabilizing the 
pallet right-side up.  However, the mains never popped, so the car hit, dead 
flat, at whatever speed an MG attains at terminal velocity.  The car was the 
flattest MG ever.
