Dr Strange

Marvel’s remake of the modern magician’s debut has a Sikorsky S-76. 

The helicopter is frozen, along with a lightning flash, in the night sky of New York, when time stops for the astral forms to ponder eternity and mortality.

This sci-fi disaster movie is a belated yet epic sequel that includes a scene with three Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawks taking off from a hospital’s roof-top heli-pad in Washington D.C. 

There’s also a ‘Marine One’ presidential flight using advanced technology, so it’s not actually a helicopter. During the alien attack, this machine fails to save a woman from a collapsing building.

Kill Command


British shoot ’em up against military robots, this low-budget actioner boasts twin co-axial rotor-craft as troop transports like a futuristic Osprey copter, with articulated legs for VTOL anywhere. This vehicle is used to fly a small team on a training mission to an island battle zone. 

There are twin-rotor mini-drones, deployed for surveillance in the woods, that flap around the soldiers. At the movie’s end, the big transport flight returns to pick-up survivors.
