wheels up
 adj.— «But the minute the last leader’s white-topped helicopter took off at the crack of dawn Friday—went “wheels up,” in the parlance of law enforcement officers—coastal Georgians rushed to resume normal summertime activities, such as basking on the beach instead of in the international spotlight.» —“The coast is clear; back to tourism” by Jingle Davis, Marlon Manuel in Savannah Atlanta Journal-Constitution (Ga.) June 12, 2004.
