Memorable Heli Moments on the Big Screen

Unread post by waxman » Thu Mar 28, 2013 9:18 am

My fascination with helicopters started in the early 70's when ABC premiered this prime time TV show, Chopper One.

I was also mesmerized by this movie starring none other than J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman). Deadly Encounter. At the time I thought this opening sequence was sooooo cool. ;-)

Then of course there was Blue Thunder, TC's MD500 in Magnum PI and of course AirWolf. This has lead me to wonder what other TV shows or movies may have utilized Helis as a significant cast member or plot device. I'm interested in hearing what your most memorable Heli moments in movies and TV shows are.

Cheers,
