Actor Vin Diesel was talking about his new movie "Furious 7" in Jimmy Kimmel Live, an American late night talk show.
At 1:48 into this YouTube video, Diesel said:
And they really did drop the cars. I mean, we did practical passes so much.
The movie has a scene where each car was dropped out of an airplane and then was landed successfully with the help of a parachute attached to each of them. What Vin Diesel is saying here is that they didn't use CGI but that they actually dropped the cars to shoot the scene. In this context, what would "pass" mean?
