Possibly Too Good To Be True: Helicopter Ballet

It’s a shill. It’s stunty and gimmicky and we should not fall for this kind of crap. But OMFG! It’s a Twilight Helicopter Air Show! PR sez: “aerial stunts including loops, rolls and flying upside down.” And Otto the Clown helicopter plays with a yo-yo? And the Showcopters do ballet to “Flight of the Valkyries?” No way dude! Someone go and report back to us because we can’t go, meaning we’re dumb and stupid, because what could be more important than choreographed helicopters? There’s beer too. It’s at the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos at 6 p.m. on June 15 and it costs sixty bucks. (Watch out, the site is PDF-happy.)
