He is the long term lover of the Rocket Man himself.
But it seems Sir Elton John's partner David Furnish prefers aeroplanes, as he flew 7,500 miles across the globe to receive special treatment for a bee sting.
The movie producer hopped on a plane in Australia and made the trip all the way to Los Angeles after experiencing uncomfortable swelling after his close encounter with the insect.

His dramatic journey caused a spate of rumours online that the Canadian was seriously ill.
However Sir Elton's spokesman quashed them, telling the Daily Star: 'The world went mad over it.
'David got a bee sting, got on a plane and got it treated. That’s it. He’s absolutely fine.'

And Sir Elton's hunky civil partner looked fit as a fiddle as he left his doctor's office in posh Beverly Hills today.
David, 49, had flown with his partner and their 11-month-old son Zachary to Australia last week as the singer was starting a sold out tour Down Under.
Sir Elton, whose birth name is Reginald Dwight, was so worried about David he considered postponing shows so he could be with him.

According to a source the Watford fan was 'extremely distressed' despite the fact his partner had only suffered a bee sting.
He added: “His first instinct was to drop the tour to be with his partner when he was sick.
“But he spoke to the tour promoter and they decided the show must go on.'
Ironically David's visit to the emergency room came just days after he had been raising AIDS awareness.
He claimed a cure for the immune system disease would be found within the lifetime of their son Zachary.
He told Liverpool station Radio City: 'We are now at the point where treatment equals prevention.'We have just had some very encouraging research results come through about retro-antiviral drug treatment.
'We found people who go on the treatment reduce the risk of passing it on to another person by 94% – that’s almost a cure.
'So we’re now starting to feel that with these great advances we will probably see an end to Aids in Zachary’s lifetime.'
David, who tied the knot with Sir Elton in 2005, has worked tirelessly to raise cash for the Elton John Aids Foundation.
It also emerged that the Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting star was given an ironic gift when he performed in New Zealand last Friday.
Capital C: Concerts managing director Phil Sprey said he gave him one of the country's popular Buzzy Bee toys for his son.
He said: 'We got him half a dozen New Zealand T-shirts for his young son and a Buzzy Bee.
'You can't leave New Zealand without a Buzzy Bee.'
No doubt Gnomeo and Juliet producer David wishes that was not the case.
