Why The Butler?
So why the butler as pilot of the helicopter? I can understand why the actual pilot of the helicopter might not have been used in this scene. Fictionally speaking the helicopter arrives at The Village and stays for two hours, and in this regard the pilot could have been anyone. So where's the pilot, and why the butler? It doesn't look right for the helicopter pilot to be wearing a bowler hat somehow. And wearing that cape must surely get in the way of the controls!
