Switchblade Glider - Die Another Day (2002)

Bond and Jinx use these Switchblades; basically a sky-diving glider plane, to escape a Chinook helicopter in the final scenes of the movie. At the time of filming the Switchblade was still in the experimental stages so the stunts were done with CGI.

The 50lb planes have an eight-foot wingspan and can reach 200mph, a small electric motor is used to extend the wings until the plane is jettisoned and the pilot parachutes down.
