The Last Ship (2014) - this TV series is about a viral apocalypse and the survivors on a US navy warship.

In the first episode, Phase Six, there are a couple of Black Hawks, with Red Cross markings, flying a CDC doctor into Egypt.

Later, a Seahawk fetches the heroine from arctic ice, and flies back to the heli-pad on a US navy destroyer.

Three Sikorsky CH-53s and two Eurocopter AS-355 gunships approach the warship, unexpectedly, and in a very unlikely twist these helicopters are identified as Russian forces.

When the TwinStar gunships circle and attack American troops on the ground, both are shot down and explode in mid-air.

Episode two, Welcome To Gitmo, sees the warship's resident Seahawk flying commando teams into Cuba.

In episode seven, SOS, there's a brief shot of the Seahawk ready on the warship's heli-pad, before it takes off to support a mission by troops in zodiac boats.

Following the rescue, the helicopter flight stays on the scene for another SAR mission. After re-fuelling, the Seahawk continues its search at night.

Two Sailors Walk Into A Bar... features a Mil Mi-24 Hind transport that picks us the US captain and flies him to a Russian warship.

The Seahawk returns to the American ship, where a lack of fuel means it makes no further appearances.
