“SPECTRE” (2015) team has moved to New Airport Palenque to continue filming the last scenes in Mexico. Six trucks and about 130 people moved to the area of Palenque to shoot the scenes that were not possible to film in high-risk areas of Mexico City.

Charles ‘Chuck’ Aaron (call sign “Malibu”) is the only pilot licensed by the FAA to perform aerobatics in a helicopter in the United States, and one of only three such pilots in the world. In 1980, Aaron worked on the air rescue program for NASA’s Space Shuttle, and he founded his own company, FX Helicopters in Westlake Village, California in 1997.
Aaron is also an experienced test pilot, having test-flown a tracking system for the Boeing AH-64 Apache; and an infrared vision system as the first helicopter pilot to deliberately fly into brownout conditions. He is also an FAA certificated Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) Mechanic, known for having assembled three working TAH-1F Cobras from surplus parts. (Wikipedia)
