Millionaire pays £2,000 for two-hour helicopter trip to eat Big Mac and fries

A hungry millionaire shelled out £2,000 to charter a helicopter so he could get McDonald’s.

Lavish Viktor Martynov paid for the chopper so he and his girlfriend could eat “normal” food whilst on holiday in Crimea.

Western companies like McDoanld’s are banned from operating in the Crimean peninsula, which Russian president Vladimir Putin seized from Ukraine in 2014.

But the starving high roller was so desperate for food from the golden arches that he took matters into his own hands.

Overcome with cravings for shakes and Big Macs, Martynov flew 450 miles to pick up his order from Krasnodar, the nearest Russian city with his beloved fast food.

And he spared no expense with his order either.

He ordered a £49 feast including burgers, fries and milkshakes – and he took his time with his meal, opting to eat-in.
