Following a visit to see Stromberg, the villain orders his henchmen to kill Bond and Major Amasova, and they are quickly on the case. Unfortunately for the wheel bound henchmen, Bond's Lotus Esprit is too quick for them, but Naomi in her helicopter can easily keep pace with the car.

Her skill at shooting the car is somewhat suspect though; hitting everything apart from the car is a skill that only the A-Team have surpassed. Anyway, Bond ends up driving the Lotus off of a pier and into the sea. Naomi rightly thinks that they have drowned, but hovers over the sea to make sure.

What Naomi doesn't know is that this is a Q-Branch modified Lotus-cum-submarine; those fellows really do cater for every eventuality Bond might encounter on his missions! As he is sitting comfortably under the water, Bond lines up the helicopter in his sights and fires a surface-to-air missile at Naomi, blowing her and the helicopter to smithereens.

Just one category for this death : Explosion

why did Bond not go to bed with Naomi?

Not enough room in the helicopter.

What kind of question is this, anyway?

Since the Chase category is now around, shouldn't we add this to Naomi's death since she was chasing him and Barbara all over Sardinia?
Comment 5 by 'Mr. Briggs Incorporated' (reply to this comment)
See the "Chase"forum, chase is only for when the chasers catch what they wanted to catch.
Comment 6 by 'Kooshmeister' (reply to this comment)
Bah, I say Chase should apply to any character who dies while involved in a chase scene, regardless of whether they're the ones being chased or not.
Comment 7 by 'A Alcott' (reply to this comment)
I say give Naomi the Chase category, she only has one category that she belongs in and that is explosion. Would the missile count as a projectile?
Comment 8 by 'hotty22' (reply to this comment)
thanks for adding the Naomi pics to your photobucket.
One of the Deaths I really like.
Naomi is totally hot in the movie.
I like her gesture and facial expressions when she starts
chasing Bond. Remember the twinkle and the wave she gave to Bond.
When she hovers over the sea to see what happened
to the Lotus after it sunk, there is a satisfied smile in her face
and she has not the faintest idea what will happen to her in a few seconds.

It would have been much cooler if we would have a look at her astounded
face in the moment she noticed the impact of the missile into her helicopter.

Ah yes, I usually prefer, with vehicle-related deaths, that the victim's reaction be shown.
