Avengers Assemble sky base

Avengers Assemble (aka: The Avengers, 2012) - this franchised super-team adventure, directed by Joss Whedon, includes an Agusta Westland AW-109 Power, which lands at the dark energy research station, and then escapes from that underground base, just in time, before the whole complex implodes and falls into a giant sink-hole.

The heroes' getaway chopper is shot down by evil Loki, but, as the damaged AW-109 crashes, Nick Fury jumps out and lands safely to survive the wreckage.

The movie also has a CGI fantasy vehicle, the S.H.I.E.L.D. 'helicarrier', which is basically a flying aircraft carrier, and this has its lifting engines sabotaged by the movie's super-villains.

Another CGI flying machine is the Avengers' plane (not really a 'quinjet', as in the Marvel comicbooks' aircraft, that boasted five engines), which has a VTOL capability.
