Trivia

Sam's helicopter is a Hughes 500C, thousands of which were built for the US Army for use as scout ships during the Vietnam War. The two helicopters of the bad guys are Aerospatiale Alouette II's, and later an Aerospatiale Gazelle (the same as used in the 1983 film Blue Thunder). The helicopter used during the aborted pickup scene is a Bell JetRanger. See more »

Goofs

During the initial chase sequence the helicopters are seen flying down a busy street at low level, but in onboard shots (looking rearward) the street is totally deserted. See more »

Best Helicopter Flying does not describe it!
21 October 2004 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I have only seen the movie once - but boy it has always stuck! I am a helicopter pilot firstly and secondly a fixed wing pilot. The flying sequences in this movie, are just absolutely stunning and well executed. I salute the pilots who performed these awesome stunts and flying! If you are an airplane nut or rotorhead, you will enjoy this movie - guaranteed! I have not seen any other movie that equals this in flying action. The only other movie that comes to mind is Blue Max, but that is all about bi-planes in WW1, never the less that movie also had some stunning flying sequences.

I wish for the movie to be released on DVD, I bet it makes a comeback!!! I buy one for each of my fly-buddies...
