"(Not to be confused with the Jokercopter)

"Into the air, junior birdmen! Missed me! Ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! Yeah! Watch me!""

―Joker[src]

History

The Joker's Helicopter was first used to escape Batman's assault on Axis Chemicals with the Batmobile. Prior to that he was chauffeured in a purple Joker Van.

Skirmish of Gotham Cathedral

"Gotham City Cathedral transportation for two. Five minutes."
―Joker[src]

The Joker's helicopter was also to be used for the Joker's escape from atop the Old Cathedral but Joker plummeted to his death as he fell from its rope ladder after Batman shot a wire around the Joker's leg, which connected it to a stone gargoyle on the ledge, and the wire pulled it loose. The helicopter was most likely rounded up by Gotham City's Air Control.

Terence and a special pilot goon were always seen in the vehicle, wearing matching purple ballcaps while operating the vehicle.

Behind the scenes

In Sam Hamm's original draft of the film, the Joker's Helicopter was destroyed by a bomb that Batman threw out the belfry. Batman intended to utilize it on both Joker and himself amidst their fight.
