This was our favourite moment from the opening ceremony, when the Queen's stunt double Gary Connery jumped out of the helicopter prompted by the cool hand of James Bond.
Here they are, just about to take the plunge.
Imagine the fun in setting up the whole event. They must have had a big whiteboard. OK, we'll get the Queen to jump out of plane, Rowan Atkinson can play Chariots of Fire, David Beckham can come in a on speed boat!
