Bond’s Mid Air Cargo Net Fight

The thrilling mid-air fight from Timothy Dalton's first Bond film

Not a stunt for anyone with a fear of heights, this showdown in The Living Daylights (1987) was a fist fight on a cargo net hanging from the back of a Hercules. High above the Mojave Desert, stunt performers BJ Worth (Bond) and Jake Lombard (Necros) duked it out hanging from a 1500-pound net flying at 100 knots and 6,500 feet. A safety man was on standby ready to leap out and deploy specially disguised parachutes.
