Is this true in real life?
In the film “The Diamond Arm”, a helicopter lifts a Moskvich-408 off the road with three smugglers in the cabin and Yuri Nikulin in the trunk, taking them away for a fair showdown. It seems to the uninitiated viewer that there is nothing supernatural in such a trick – it hooked and flew.
But in fact, the helicopter does not have a device for securing cargo, and it is useless to cling a car to the trunk – it will come off with a force of 50 kg. The only option that is acceptable in terms of strength is to thread two lines through the open windows of the front and rear doors. But they must be moored by a rigger.
In general, the idea of stealing a car using a helicopter was spied on in the James Bond film You Only Live Twice. However, there the helicopter had an electromagnet.
