Imagine this: The Villa party is in full swing. Three people have already wound up in the pool in their clothes. Suddenly the DJ’s set is drowned out by the rhythmical “thumpa, thumpa, thumpa” of an approaching whirlybird, the crowd turns to watch it touch down in the open field next to the guest house and the snake-skin boot wearing passenger steps out of the cockpit and onto the lawn. Ladies and gentlemen, this is how you make an entrance.
No longer just for cocaine barons and paramedics, the helicopter truly is the most badass way to arrive at places, having narrowly beat out arriving by hovercraft or by elephant convoy in this year’s poll.
