The Pope makes his final exit from the Vatican City yesterday — in a helicopter

Benedict XVI waved from the window of the white chopper as he was flown over Rome and the millions watching below.

Moments before take off, a message was posted on his Twitter account to say: “Thank you for your love and support.”
The Pope, who was flown to the Castel Gandolfo, the papal summer residence, is the first to quit in 600 years.
