The H.A.L.O skydiving sequence (distance of 7 km / 25000 feet, traveling speed of 265 – 320 km/h) was the last sequence filmed during production, but it was the first stunt designed and required a full year of planning out. The crew had only a limited time window of three minutes a day during sunset to film a jump.
Because of strict air aviation regulations in France, it could only be shot in the Emirates. It took Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, the skydiving camera operator Craig O’Brien (who was instructed to keep a distance of three feet from Cruise while filming) and others involved a total of 106 jumps to get three possible takes.

Curiously absent from the final theatrical cut is the final shot seen in several of the movie’s trailers, in which Ethan Hunt appears to be flying a helicopter at ground level directly towards a tractor-trailer. The shot itself is odd, considering the entire final cut of the helicopter sequence takes place in a remote, snow-covered mountainous area, whereas the deleted shot appears to take place directly above a surface road surrounded by a thick canopy of greenery.
Your mission, should you *choose* to accept it.” I wonder, did you ever choose not to? The end you’ve always feared is coming. And the blood will be on your hands. The fallout of all your good intentions.

Christopher McQuarrie wanted to keep the “Mission: Impossible” franchise tradition of “practical stunts, practical action, and real locations with as little green screen as humanly possible.”
