Check it out! The flying motorbike belonging to Sirius Black is back, as witnessed in new location photos for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Although not so airborne as in the books, you can see these new pics (more here all courtesy of HP4U) of stunt doubles for Hagrid and Harry zooming along the Dartford-Thurrock River Crossing tunnel and bridge express  way in Kent, England as they did a sequence to be used for the Seven Potters scene. Neither Dan Radcliffe nor Robbie Coltrane were present for the filming. reports that "the bulk of the shoot was centered on obtaining wide shots of the pair being chased into the tunnel. Harry wearing a grey hoodie with a stripe down the arm and wand at the ready, Hagrid, in his familiar huge coat and sporting his goggles sped at around 30 mph in real time speed, weaving in and out of traffic with great effect. For Friday morning, we were treated to further perspective shots of the pair racing through the tunnels, despite the oncoming traffic, weaving in and out with Hagrid seemingly kicking out at any vehicles which came too close and Harry casting spells to his rear."
Other filming for the scenes will take place at both Leavesden and on location, rumored to be Hartfordshire over the next few weeks.

Thanks much to, ONTD, SS, and all who owled!

I am so happy the motorbike is in the movie! I am hoping that most people are right about the flying bits not having been filmed yet. It will lose so much of the drama without that.

Wow, and already the complainers come out shouting that the film is ruined. Sometimes, I just can’t help but shake my head at the overreactions on here.

Woah! This sounds so awesome. I think it would be cool if the motorbike did weave in and out of traffic on the ground for a little while (like the Knight bus) before taking off into the air. I think a combination of both would be awesome.
