Queen for a night
Stunt man -- emphasis on man -- Gary Connery is talking about his skydive dressed as Queen Elizabeth II for the opening ceremonies at Olympic Stadium.
Connery tells Sky News he "thoroughly enjoyed getting dressed up as Queenie."
It wasn't 007 Daniel Craig either on Friday night: it was fellow stuntman Mark Sutton done up as James Bond.
But yes, it was the real royal and the real actor who made their dramatic entrance.
Connery says he had to maneuver a tricky tight bridge landing, but that's what being a pro is all about. He'd done more than 880 skydives and 450 base jumps.
