Helicopter flights over Neverland Ranch in California are being booked for the second anniversary of Michael Jackson's death.

The singer was 50 when he died on June 25, 2009. He owned the Neverland Ranch in the Santa Ynez Valley for years.

Oxnard-based Channel Island's Helicopters says the half-hour "Flight Over Neverland" event costs $175 per person and $500 for a private flight of up to three people.

The Santa Barbara News-Press reports the flights run from 9 a.m. to sunset on June 24 and June 25.

A spokesman for the company says it has already booked about 100 passengers, with more seats still available for June 25.

The flights depart Santa Barbara Municipal Airport on June 24 and Santa Ynez Airport on June 25.
