It was predicted at the Future Furnishings exhibit at the Hill Valley Science Exposition in 1931 that helicopters would be used to replenish the bowl of wax fruit hanging from the ceiling, which was similar to the Garden Center fruit dispenser in 2015.
Behind the scenes
- As a recurring gag, an aircraft flies overhead every time Marty returns to 1985 from another year during the Back to the Future trilogy. While a helicopter features in both Part I and Part III of the trilogy (although it's only heard rather than seen in the latter), in Part II it's an airliner that nearly collides with the flying DeLorean as Marty, Doc, Jennifer and Einstein return from 2015 to what turns out to be a nightmarish alternate reality.
