When the Queen of England parachuted into the Olympics

One of the highlights of the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Olympics in London was the sketch featuring the Queen and James Bond. In the full clip, Bond - played by British actor Daniel Craig - is greeted by Her Royal Highness and her corgis at Buckingham Palace. Secret agent 007 whisks the Queen off into a helicopter flying over the capital to East London before the daredevils parachute out of the helicopter into the Olympic Stadium. Mark Sutton, the stuntman who parachuted into the Stadium dressed as Bond, died the following year in a wingsuit flying accident in Switzerland. He had been travelling at around 125 miles per hour when he hit a ridge.
