In the new release of the film Furious 7 - part of the Fast and the Furious series of movies, was a scene where exotic cars drop out of a C-17. With a little movie magic the plane was not a C-17 but actually a Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules.

According to CNN, "Film producers hired a Lockheed C-130 Hercules to fly five cars 12,000 feet high, open a cargo door at the rear of the plane and parachute them out in a spectacular free-fall stunt."

In the article about the C-130 car drop, CNN also talks about the 60th Anniversary of the C-130 Hercules and the amazing accomplishments the plane has made over the years including being apart of the US Navy Blue Angels as Fat Albert. Check out the video and the rest of the story at CNN.
