Mission: Impossible – Fallout



Grim Berge...

Award-winning contributor Grim Berge created this amazing recreation of a scene from the 2018 blockbuster Mission: Impossible - Fallout from its original filming location.  Located in western Norway, Preikestolen, aka the Pulpit Rock, features a vertical cliff of over 600 meters (almost 2k ft.) down to the Lysefjorden.  Shot mainly with a DJI Inspire 2 drone, the video recreates an epic escape scene in the film, which was set in the Himalayas but was in fact filmed right here in Norway. 

Mission: Impossible 2


Dead Horse Point Utah State Park


AirVuz contributor montesinosdroneworld brings us this beautiful drone video of one of the most iconic spots in the Southwestern USA: Dead Horse Point, which is part of the Moab Canyon area in southeastern Utah.  Due to its similarity to the Grand Canyon, Dead Horse Point has been used to film numerous movies and TV shows, most notably the famous (but tragic) ending scene of the 1991 road adventure/comedy movie Thelma & Louise, and the opening scene in the 1999 installment of the Mission: Impossible series, Mission: Impossible 2.

Cloud Dronelapse - Burj Khalifa


Contributor Moadh_Bukhash used a drone and his editing skills to create an impressive timelapse aerial look at the Burj Khalifa, the centerpiece of the Dubai skyline.  At over 800 meters (about 2.7k ft) excluding its antennae, the 163 floor mixed use tower has been the world's tallest building since it opened in 2010.  The tower was the shooting scene for a famous stunt scene in the 2011 blockbuster movie Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, in which Tom Cruise  was filmed dangling from the building.

Contributor Alexaroundtheworld created this magnificent drone video of Shanghai, China.  The highlight of the video is a climb up to the top of the city's three tallest buildings, located right next to each other in the Pudong District: the 128 story, 632 meter (just under 2.1k) Shanghai Tower, opened in 2015; the Shanghai World Financial Center (2008, 492 m/1.6k ft.), and Jin Mao Tower (1999, 421 m/1.4k ft.).   The last was the filming location for a famous jump scene by Tom Cruise in  Mission: Impossible III (2006).

When it opened in the early 1950's, Chesapeake Bay Bridge was the longest over-water span in the world at 6.9 km (4.3 mi.).  Now a dual span bridge, it connects Maryland's eastern and western shores of Chesapeake Bay.  Contributor Eyes in the Sky used a drone to create this impressive aerial video of this impressive steel span, officially known as the Gov. William Preston Lane Jr. Memorial Bridge.  The bridge was the filming location for a high profile scene in the 2006 movie Mission: Impossible III.

Check out this drone video of Rabat, the capital of Morocco.  Rabat was a filming location for the 2015 movie Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the fifth in the series.  A port city situated on Morocco's Atlantic coastline, it's "only" about eight centuries old - young by Moroccan city standards.  The city gained some notoriety from appearing as a filming location for a high profile chase scene in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation (2015), the fifth installment in the Mission Impossible series.  

Mission: Impossible III


St. Peter's Cathedral, Vatican City


Brandonclark brings us this short but epic aerial of Vatican City, an enclave in the heart of Rome, Italy.  The city is dominated by the massive St. Peter's Basilica, which opens up onto Vatican Square.  Vatican City is the home of the top leadership of the Catholic Church, and is one of the most recognized sights in the world.  Famously, Vatican City was the filming location for an extended scene in the 2006 thriller Mission: Impossible III although portions of the scene were filmed in Siena.

AirVuz contributor Alessio Tricarico brings us this excellent drone video of the area around the Spanish Steps in Rome, one of the most recognized landmarks in the Eternal City.  The 135 steps connect the Piazza di Spagna with the church Trinità dei Monti at the top.  The steps have featured prominently in several important works of literature, most famously in F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender is the Night.  More recently, it was the filming location for an epic chase scene in the 2023 blockbuster Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning.

Paris: The Arc de Triomphe


Sphereview created this magnificent bird's eye view of the Arc de Triomphe in central Paris, one of the most iconic sites of Europe.  It anchors the western end of the Champs-Élysées, the French capital's most important roadway.  It was built as a memorial to France's war dead in the Napoleonic Wars, and its Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is the country's greatest memorial for its World War I dead.  The Arc was used as the filming location for a key scene in the 2018 film Mission Impossible: Fallout.
