Sky Science were given the task of organising a BASE jump from a tower block, with the added complications of using Birdman suits. After a birdman flight over Hong Kong the jumpers land on a moving boat waiting out in the harbour.

This stunt had never been done before and because there were not many experienced BASE jumpers, at the time, who were also experienced with Birdman suits, it was difficult to organise the selection and training of a team that would do it justice.

After intensive searches and verification of skills I (Allan Hewitt) recruited Team Bautasten. Simon Crane endorses my selection and over the next few months my time was filled with planning, training and executing the stunt.

Mikael Nordqvist is one of the most experienced base jumpers in Scandinavia. He is one of the two jumpers that started Team Bautasten and he took on the task of filming the stunt.

Per "PerFlare" Eriksson is one of the most active base jumpers in Sweden today. Per doubled up for Angelina Jolie and was one of the two original members of Team Bautasten.

Martin Rosén is the most recent member of Team Bautasten and also the youngest. Martin was ask to join the Team in 2001 and doubled up for Gerard Butler

Sky Science also had the to organise the parachute jump into the landrover in Kenya and the deployment of the parachutes ejecting Lara Croft and her co star from the 2 man aircraft before it crashed. . ................ doubled up for Angelina Jolie and Allan Hewitt doubled up for Gerard Butler.
