(2003) - brilliant sci-fi superhero movie directed by Ang Lee sees the scientist hero (Eric Bana) transformed into a giant green creature. When he
is captured by US Army forces, they use a skycrane transport with Cobra gunship escort to carry him to a secret military base in the desert.
Later, the Hulk escapes from the underground prison only to be pursued and attacked by four hi-tech Boeing-Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche helicopters.
These stealth weapons are generated by computer animation (as is the Hulk character), but this blockbuster production has some of the finest digital
effects yet seen, and there are fantastic action sequences when the incredible Hulk fights the US army's best rotorcraft assets with his bare hands.
"The Comanche was all digital. We used, what is becoming a common practice of flying, a 'target
aircraft'. Several scenes were filmed by ground cameras as well as the Spacecam on another helicopter. I flew a Eurocopter AS 350-B2 which had
'reference' marks painted on it. The cameras filmed me performing the maneuvers that the Comanche was called upon to fly. The reference marks on
the A-Star are then tracked by the computer and transferred to the digital model allowing the computer guys to make it look much more realistic
when it 'flies'. It particularly helps them achieve the proper bank-angle versus rate-of-turn look. I have used this technique on many occasions."
