Great! Making more use of the copter at last, it must have needed a dust down!

This should really set Sky News above everyone else, I'm glad I'm off tomorrow afternoon.

Will they have the sound and camera team running after her and getting in all of the shots like in Challenge Anneka? It would be good to have teams on the ground to film the copter landing at each point, just to make a point that they have a copter.

That picture is just plain kooky...put it in the caption section!

Would love to see Kay doing a helicopter dash across the country (is she dropping into anyone's backyard?), bit reminiscant of a superstar doing gigs one after the other, lol.

Keep the Skyless (or Foxteless in my case) informed!
