THE SAINT (2017)
This spy thriller is a TV movie made in 2013 but not released (as a tribute to the actor) until after Roger Moore’s death.

The hero shoots back and the damaged helicopter drifts away trailing smoke.
After crashing off-screen, the wreckage explodes in the grounds of the resort but, in an error of continuity, the downed chopper is portrayed by a Bell 206 JetRanger.
