Arrive in style but hold onto your hat
To The Cup by helicopter
You have to imagine this. You have never been on a helicopter ride. You fly over Melbourne, over the skyscrapers, the roads and traffic. The city is spread beneath you. It's a special day. Melbourne Cup Day. As you arrive at Flemington, you see the emerald green race track, slowly, slowly coming into focus. Then as you get closer all the pomp and colour comes into sharp relief. Then you touch down adjacent to the course starting straight. Talk about making an entrance.
Helicopters are a great way to get to the Spring Racing Season, Expensive yes, but at least you avoid the gridlock of traffic below and you get to arrive in style. Although hold onto your hat!
Hold on to your hat!
And if you have never been in a helicopter before, it makes a special day a sensational one. You will have all that adrenalin pumping.
