It is almost two years to the day that the world heard the shock news that the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, had died at the premature age of 49. Now, with the two-year anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death approaching, preparations are underway to allow Jackson fans to mark the occasion in very special ways.
One helicopter company is giving fans the chance to pay their respects to Michael Jackson by raining flowers down around Michael Jackson’s home, Neverland, in mid-flight.
The 30-minute Channel Island Helicopter flights are set to take off on June 24th and 25th. That time will mark the second anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death from a cardiac arrest induced by the powerful surgical anesthetic drug, Propofol.
The 911 call to call an ambulance for Michael Jackson came in the early hours of the morning on June 25th. At that time, Michael Jackson had already stopped breathing and it was thought that his heart had stopped by then, although attempts to resuscitate the “Thriller” star continued for some time.
During the commemorative helicopter flights, passengers will be encouraged to honor the late entertainer by throwing his favorite flower, a red rose, out of the helicopter mid-flight. They should land over nearby Zaca Peak.
A representatibe for the helicopter company said that Michael Jackson fans are very excited about the aerial tour of Neverland. He said that the fans believe that it will bring them closer to heaven and closer to Michael Jackson.
What do you think? Will you be signing up for a Neverland helicopter flight? Or will you be commemorating the death of Michael Jackson in some other way?
