Robbie Maddison's Air Craft (slyt) Motorcycle stuntman Robbie Maddison, who worked on the James Bond movie Skyfall, shows off his skills at an Arizona airplane graveyard. Like Danny Macaskill with a motor, or Ken Block with fewer wheels, kinda.

Mad props to the folks who decided a Porsche was the proper vehicle to mount a camera crane on! Great video, thanks for posting!

Riding was great -- location was interesting, but, man, that was one annoying film to watch. The director should be flogged.

I didn't think it was possible they filmed that chase in Skyfall actually on the roof of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, but hell, they did.

As a (mostly terrible) trials rider, I am compelled to submit Dougie Lampkin riding through Goodwood House on his Beta.
