Superman II (1980) - in this sequel adventure (credited to Richard Lester, but shot mostly back-to-back with the Superman movie),
several military helicopters appear on a TV news programme - viewed only in the background on a TV set in the White House, before the scene cuts to small town invaded
by three super-villains from Krypton. There's one actual machine featured (apparently, a Eurocopter AS 350 Ecureuil), in US Army markings, that fires rockets as it
strafes the main street.
The bad guys are unfazed and unperturbed, though Ursa (Sarah Douglas) blinks too much - if she's supposed to be invulnerable! - as she walks through clouds of dust
and smoke. At the suggestion of General Zod (Terence Stamp), Ursa blows a kiss to the gunship, and her super-breath forces it out of control, so it crashes behind
a barn. With the chopper now out of sight, the building promptly explodes. This helicopter footage was also included in Richard Donner's 2006 director's cut.
