London Has Fallen

This sequel to Olympus Has Fallen (2013) has a few good helicopter scenes. 

First, there’s a Metropolitan police Eurocopter EC-145 hovering over the city.

During the security prep and British police briefing, there’s a brief shot of helicopters in silhouette, flying in formation.

Arriving in Britain, the US president is flown into London by the Sikorsky VH-60N White Hawk and its two decoy helicopters.

After the initial terrorist attacks, POTUS and his bodyguard escape across London to reach the helicopters but, even when he's airborne, the president is still not safe.

When a missile strike destroys one of the choppers, and a second is forced into a sacrifice position to intercept another missile when the flights all run out of flares.

In addition to destroying several of London’s landmarks, the special effects for this movie include White Hawk helicopters attacked by terrorists.

Eventually, the US President’s helicopter flight ‘Marine One’ is shot down by a missile and crashes in a field.
