Truth time: When I wrote my first drive report of the 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, I left out a pretty cool, pretty important detail. You see, in addition to doing all of the nifty off-road stuff and blasting through the winding roads of the English countryside, Land Rover pulled quite the stunt by having us drive through an airplane. That is, we scaled a ramp, drove into the passenger compartment of a Boeing 747, and drove out of the plane. They even left some seats inside for effect.

Once inside the 747, Land Rover had a pretty challenging little course set up for us to test the rock crawl mode of the Range Rover Sport's Terrain Response 2 system. At one point, the Sport was tipped at a 40-degree angle while one of the event staff informed my backseat passenger that he might want to move to the opposite side of the vehicle to balance it all out.

All in, the experience was mildly terrifying, and one of the stranger things I've done in my life. Words can't really describe the full experience, but thankfully, we captured a video of the whole stunt. Check it out, below.
