set with James Bond 007 : Die Another Day.
Shot on location in
Aldershot, southern England, this army tank testing course was doubling
for the DMZ in Korea. The area had been 'dressed' to look like a military
installation, featuring watch towers, Korean advertising hoardings, mined
areas, burnt out vehicles and tank traps. All around were hovercraft, most
of them small one-man versions but a couple of larger craft as well. The
camera crews were located in strategic places, as well as onboard Bickers
Action vehicles. The action unit was directed by Vic Armstrong, whilst
Special FX crews set up various explosions and charges to replicate gun
fire. Stuntmen Ray De-Hann, Roy
Alon and Dave
Forman, dressed as Korean soldiers, were in command of the hovercraft,
with George Cottle doubling for James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan.
