Xander Cage is left for dead after an incident, though he secretly returns to action for a new, tough assignment with his handler Augustus Gibbons.
This marks the second incident where Vin Diesel opted out of the second entry of a series that he originally launched as the lead before reprising the role again. Diesel also skipped the second entry of The Fast and the Furious franchise.
I live for this shit.
When Jane Marke is presenting the airplane to Xander Cage, she claims that the airplane has been modified to "have enough fuel to circumnavigate the Earth three times without landing".
The airplane is a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III, which originally has a maximum fuel range of ~11 000 km, if it's (more or less) empty(this number is halved if there is any payload). To do this, the airplane needs ~134 500L of fuel. If it is going to circumnavigate the earth three times(~120 225km), it would require ~1,5 million liters of fuel, more than 10 times the original capacity. If they actually did add this amount of fuel (and fuel tanks) to the airplane, the airplane would have a takeoff weight of 132 000 metric tonnes, which is ~5 times max takeoff weight, and 1700 times the payload for the C-17.
Another point to this, is that the C-17 Globemaster III is capable of Air to Air refueling, meaning that they can, at least when it comes to fuel, fly indefinitely as long as they get AtA refuels.
