An overhead lift. The partners skate facing each other, with the lifting partner skating backwards. They clasp hands and the lifted partner is raised over the lifting partner's head as in a forward lasso lift. In the air, the lifted partner maintains a position parallel to the ice with an arched back with the legs extended back and split in a "V" position, as though the arms and legs are the blades of a helicopter as the lift is turned by the lifting partner.
A helicopter is an aircraft which is lifted and propelled by one or more horizontal rotors consisting of two or more rotor blades. Helicopters are classified as rotorcraft to distinguish them from fixed-wing aircraft because the helicopter derives its source of lift from the rotor blades rotating around a mast. In fact, the word 'helicopter' originates from the Greek words elikoeioas (helical or spiral) and pteron (wing or feather).
"Helicopter" is a song by British indie rock band Bloc Party. It was first released as a single from their 2004 EP Little Thoughts on October 25, 2004 in the Europe and released again on February 21, 2006 in the US.
