8. Handel, Arrival of the Queen of Sheba
Never mind the Arrival of the Queen of Sheba from Handel's opera, Solomon, what about the arrival of Queen Elizabeth? Her Royal Highness took to the skies with James Bond, Daniel Craig, and entered the Opening Ceremony by parachuting from a helicopter to open the Games.
