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
