Spectre crew shoot breath-taking scenes in Austria of an aircraft nosediving into a snowy trail

Mayday! Spectre crew shoot breath-taking scenes in Austria of an aircraft nosediving into a snowy trail

It's set to be one of the biggest action movies this year when it hits cinemas in autumn.
So ensuring that every shot is visually stunning, the film crew of Spectre were pictured on set perfecting scenes of a plane crash on Thursday.
With no members of the star studded cast in sight, the camera and stunt team got to work as they shot against the backdrop of a snowy Austrian trail.

The breathtaking stills see the black aircraft lose altitude as it crashes nose first into the snow. 
As the jet falls out of the sky it's unexpected landing sees it snap in half as the tail is flung to one side before it comes to a halt. 
Although not too much is known about the upcoming movie, producers of the film said that it centres on 'a cryptic message from Bond's past (that) sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization.'

Set to be released in October, the latest installment in the franchise sees Craig reprise his role as the British spy for the fourth time. 
With Sam Mendes taking to the director's chair once more, Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Monica Belushi, Dave Bautista and Andrew Scott are all lined up to star in the blockbuster.
Waltz has been widely expected to assume the role of legendary villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, head of the Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion.
However the Oscar winning actor insists his part is more complex than speculation suggests.

Asked if he would head the fictional terrorism organisation, Christoph told Collider: ‘No. No. It's more interesting than that.’ 
This came shortly after Craig said the script for Spectre, which is expected out this October, is ‘better than we had last time’.
According to the actor, who's playing James Bond for the fourth time in the new film, Spectre should be superior to the 2012 hit Skyfall, which made more than $1.1 billion at the worldwide box office.
He said: ‘We've got an amazing cast and, I think, a better script than we had last time.’ 
Waiting for his cue: Rocking earmuffs Craig stood with his hands in his pockets as he watched the crew in action
