Bell 206L-3 in Midnight Run

Mafia hitmen use the helicopter to chase the car driven by a bounty hunter, and the airborne gunmen play a cat 'n' mouse game on the highway, firing their assault rifles to force the heroes' car off the road, and the shooting action makes the driver crash under a bridge.

Jack (Robert De Niro) shoots the copter's tail rotor - so that it spins out of control, hits the rock face of a riverbank, and explodes in mid-air.
