The Expendables 2 helicopter

The Expendables 2 (2012) - this action movie sequel has four military helicopters, used in a couple of rescue missions and the final showdown.

During the raid in Nepal, a modified MBB Bo-105 appears, to strafe the hero's position on a rooftop.

The hero deploys a rider-less 'flying' motorbike that is aimed at the Bolkow gunship, and the damaged helicopter promptly nose-dives into the ground so hard that its stub-wings fall off.

In the aircraft hanger, there's a fight sequence that ends when the chief henchman is pushed headfirst into the spinning tail rotor of a Bell 430, intended as escape vehicle for the baddies.

In the background of the hanger we can see a Mil Mi-24 Hind parked nearby.
