Unhappy James Bond's Stand-in Jumps From Plane & Dies

A Thumbs-up Before he Leapt to his Death: Video Footage Captures the Last Moments of James Bond Stuntman Before he Died in Fall 20 Seconds Later

  • Mark Sutton, 42, died during a wingsuit jump in the Swiss Alps
  • The stuntman played James Bond at Olympics opening ceremony
  • The video shows him, giving thumbs up before jumping to his death
By Daily Mail UK, 2 October 2013



Dramatic footage of tragic James Bond stuntman Mark Sutton giving the thumbs up literally seconds before he dies has been released.

The poignant video was taken from inside a helicopter as he prepared to jump out of it in a wingsuit.
Released with the full consent of his family, the heartrending film shows Mark, 42, leaping from the helicopter to his death.





Thumbs up: Mark Sutton gives the camera a gesture of approval before he exits the helicopter for what was to be his final jump


He died 20 seconds later. Mark, who wowed crowds as 007 at the Olympics opening ceremony, crashed into a mountain ridge at a speed of 155 mph.
He was one of 23 world-class wingsuit pilots taking part in a non-competitive event in August in Trient, Switerland, near the French town of Chamonix.

The event - HeliBASE 74 - was organised by EpicTV, an online extreme sports channel that has since made a series of films about it.
Panu Lehti, Head of EpicTV, said: ‘When Mark died we were devastated and planned to shelve the whole project.

'But when the other pilots showed us that the best way to remember Mark was to think about what he would have wanted, we decided to go ahead with the series.




One jump: Wearing patriotic blue, red and white, Mr Sutton looks out over the Alps




Ready: Although he observes the cloudiness below, Mark leaps off the helicopter




Final moment: Mark Sutton died seconds after this was filmed, aged 42, in the Swiss Alps





Incredible views: The helmet cameras of Mr Sutton's teammates capture the amazing
heights they reach as they leap out of the helicopter



‘We knew it would be difficult for his family so before publishing this episode we showed it to his brother Steve. It feels good to know we have the family behind us. HeliBASE 74 is dedicated to the memory of Mark Sutton and to the strength of his family and friends as well.’
Tragedy struck on the first day of the event. It was Mark’s first jump. He was partnered in the helicopter with another British wingsuiter, Tony Uragallo.




Moments from death: Sutton's bright wingsuit is visible as he falls through the sky in this grab from the video





The world-class stuntman tragically died moments after this video was shot



In the film, Tony movingly describes how the tragedy unfolded.

He says: ‘Everyone is having a good time. It’s so nice to get out above a mountain. Normally we have to climb a mountain.
‘Mark suggested I follow him and I thought ‘that’s great’, because he’s a much better base jumper than me.
‘He’s right there, looking at me, looking at the spot. He’s telling the pilot ‘right, left, bit more, bit more…’






Nervous: In the last piece of footage before his crash Mr Sutton expresses his concerns
about the foggy conditions at the beginning of the scheduled day's jump





Poignant: In another scene Mark Sutton, centre in black jacket, is shown listening with his fellow pilots
to the safety briefing given before the group start their jumps






Mark was one of 23 world-class wingsuit pilots taking part in a non-competitive event in August in Trient, Switerland



Mark, dressed in his red, white and blue wingsuit, can be seen edging along the back seat of the chopper towards the open door.
He gestures to the pilot to veer right then puts his right thumb up and climbs out of the helicopter.
Mark launches himself off the side of the helicopter and he is seen free falling, followed closely by Tony.
Footage shows two colourful specks plummeting through the cloud.

Tony says: ‘He turns and he jumps and I just followed him. He can follow the terrain a lot better than me and I’ll just follow his line.
‘And then he just suddenly turned left real quick. And I couldn’t believe it.’

Tony is then seen landing in a field.

He says: ‘I landed close to everyone and I shouted out: ‘Mark hit the mountain.’ That destroys everything. Everybody is so upset. People in tears.’





Proud: After his James Bond stunt last year, Mark Sutton's girlfriend Victoria Homewood posted
this photo on her Facebook with the message: 'My very handsome 007 xxx'



Recalling the moment he realized Mark had died, fellow wingsuit pilot Colombian Jhonathan Florez says: ‘It’s just so real. Our worst fear was actually happening.’

Norwegian wingsuiter Espen Fadnes says:

‘Tony is landing with this face of confusion and shock.’
Repeatedly drawing his fingers across his throat, he adds: ‘He’s giving me the sign.’

Referring to Tony going back up in the helicopter to pinpoint Mark’s location, he adds: ‘They can see from the heli that there is no point for them to go down and do anything about it.

‘I feel sadness, confusion, shock.’

Tony says: ‘Mark dying like that was just horrifying. Mark was my hero.’

Tony, who has since retired, adds: ‘I am going to go and buy a ranch in Montana and raise horses.’

Austrian wingsuiter Hubert Schober, who jumped from the same helicopter as Mark minutes before, says:

‘It’s Mark you know. It’s not like anyone. We’ve been in the chopper with him. I’d seen him two minutes before. You shake hands. You say: ‘Good flight. Rip it. Tear it up.’ And then two minutes later you go like: ‘What?’’





Killed: Mark Sutton, centre, the daredevil who amazed the world when he parachuted into the
London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony
dressed as James Bond has died after a stunt went wrong.

It was Mark’s first jump of the day. Earlier in the film, Mark is seen looking up to the sky and saying apprehensively: ‘It’s covered in cloud.’

It is not known whether the weather conditions that day were a factor in Mark’s death.

EpicTV, an online extreme sports channel, organised the three-day event. They have made a four-part film called Risking Everything For The Ultimate Flight – HeliBASE 74.
The company paid for the participants’ travel, accommodation and helicopter flights in return for rights to all footage taken during the event. They were each fitted with a number of tiny cameras.

All participants had signed a disclaimer.

Mark shot to fame last year during the opening ceremony for the London Olympics.
He was dressed as James Bond and fellow stuntman Gary Connery doubled as the Queen as they parachuted into the stadium.

The stunt came after billions of viewers worldwide watching the opening ceremony saw a film of Daniel Craig, dressed in a dinner suit as James Bond, call at Buckingham Palace and be joined by the real Queen.
Mark was one of the best-known figures in BASE jumping.

Mark and his fellow wingsuiters had been staying in Chamonix, France, and had crossed over into Switzerland to wingsuit jump.
He had travelled to France with his girlfriend Victoria Homewood, 39.
