Like a scene straight out of a Hollywood flick, gangster Redoine Faid, 46, pulled off a prison break on Sunday when he fled from a prison near Paris in a hijacked helicopter.
The courtyard that they landed the helicopter in is the only one in Réau that doesn't have helicopter nets on it. Helicopter escapes from prisons in France were relatively common up until the late 2000s.

They then managed to whisk him away in a helicopter parked in a nearby school yard, according to French media.

The three accomplices successfully helped Faid escape and later landed the aircraft 37 miles from the prison before setting it alight and fleeing in a black Renault vehicle. He was later released, in shock but with no physical injuries.
He's been locked up since a 2010 cash-transport van robbery that planned and executed.
When the chopper arrived, Faid was meeting with his brother in the visiting room.
Investigators are looking into whether Faid, who had been at the Reau prison since November, had inside help.
Faid, who grew up in tough immigrant suburbs outside Paris, has made several television appearances and co-authored two books about his delinquent youth and rise as a criminal in the Paris suburbs.
Although he was sentenced to 30 years in prison for these activities, he was released on parole after 10 years.
