007 arrives via black cab at Buckingham Palace while the Queen is writing a letter. An aide introduces him and James and Elizabeth depart by helicopter, overflying London. Many onlookers wave, and even the statue of Churchill smiles and greets them. At dusk, they arrive over the stadium, bail out, and parachute to earth.
Behind the scenes
The parachute jump as seen by the spectators on the ground was performed by stunt doubles for Bond/Craig (Mark Sutton) and the Queen (Gary Connery). Elizabeth had already arrived on the stadium grounds some time earlier.
