The Pope Just Peaced Out Of The Vatican In This Awesome Helicopter

After putting in his two weeks notice earlier this month, today is Pope Benedict XVI's last day in office. Is he leaving the Vatican in a Popemobile? No way, he's taking to the sky.

The Pope just departed in what appears to be an Agusta Westland AW139. He'll be flying to his summer home at Castel Gandolfo, a few miles southeast of Rome.

Remember, although Benedict does not have a driver's license, he does have a helicopter license. I don't think he's flying it himself, though.

But while he's not a car guy, the outgoing Pope does have a motorcycle license, and he will no doubt be spending his retirement running hot laps around the Castel Gandolfo track in his personalized Honda CBR1000RR. (I just made that last paragraph up. I wish it were true, though.)
