Gary Connery told Sky News that the team carried out a number of test jumps - both over the stadium and several airfields - in the months leading up to the event.
Connery, who jumped from a helicopter dressed as the Queen as part of a Bond-themed segment featuring the monarch, landed on a nearby bridge following the stunt. As he disappeared from view, Her Majesty made her entrance alongside her husband Prince Philip.
42-year-old Connery described the jump as "unsurpassable" and" absolutely stunning", adding that he "thoroughly enjoyed dressing up as Queenie".
The stuntman made headlines in May after becoming the first person to jump from 2,400 feet and live without deploying a parachute.
