Prison helicopter escapes
Action movie villains don’t take the easy way out. When they make their escape from prison, they go as over-the-top as possible. Sometimes literally, by having someone fly a helicopter in to rescue them.
This, strangely, happens all the time. In 1971, Joel David Kaplan, an American businessman accused of killing his partner and sending money to Latin America via the CIA, escaped from Santa Martha Acatitla prison in Mexico when a helicopter landed in the yard and escorted Kaplan and another prisoner to America.
In 1973, an IRA member stole a helicopter and busted three of his associates out of a Dublin jail this way. In 1986, Michel Vaujour escaped from prison by threatening his way onto the roof—using a fake gun and, amazingly, nectarines painted to look like grenades—and was picked up by his lovely wife in a helicopter. In 1987, gangster John Kendall, along with murderer Sydney Draper, got out of prison when a hijacked helicopter picked them up from the exercise yard. There are many, many more. This has happened as recently as 2014. By this point, it wouldn’t even seem like an outlandish plot point in "Orange is the New Black."
