Tom Cruise has become known for his daring Mission Impossible stunts, stemming from his scaling of the Burj Khalifa in Ghost Protocol to his cargo plane scene in Rouge Nation. Now we get behind the scenes footage of his HALO jump in Fallout.

The 25,000-foot plunge took immense planning, as director Christopher McQuarrie noted, as he and Cruise spoke about the stunt for “a number of years.” Producer Jake Myers said “there is a danger of hypoxia and the bends” – meaning there’s deficiency in the amount of oxygen reaching the tissues and decompression sickness, respectively – so the production team had to design a special helmet that functions “both as a prop and a life-saving device.”

Stunt coordinator Wade Eastwood stated “Tom was the first actor to do a HALO jump on camera,” and the footage above highlights a look at the deadly stunt as well as Cruise’s dedication for the scene, repeating the jump about 100 times.
