Olympus Has Fallen (2013) - this action movie about a White House siege features plenty of CGI helicopter scenes. After the tragic limo accident on a river bridge near Camp David, there is a Black Hawk hovering above the president's own security team.

Kiowa Warrior in Olympus Has Fallen
When the Korean ground attack begins, three Bell OH-58D Kiowa Warrior choppers provide air support for US troops, but they do not counterattack the enemy forces. One of the Kiowa gunships circles the White House during night scenes.

As the drama continues, there is a frequent buzz of helicopter noise from overhead but the helicopters often remain off-screen.

Tiger SEAL teams attempt a rescue using six special operations MH-60L Black Hawks fitted with stub wings. One is shot down by advanced Hydra weapon and this first helicopter crashes into the White House lawn. A second Black Hawk soon follows it into the ground. Two more disappear from view in the battle and they are not seen again.

The remaining pair of Black Hawk gunships are ordered to abort mission, but the fifth transport suffers tail rotor damage so it spins out of control and crash lands on the White House rooftop in a spectacular explosion that destroys half of the building.

Another Black Hawk transport is allowed to land in the White House grounds for the terrorists' getaway attempt with hostages, that supposedly include the president, but the helicopter explodes in midair just after taking off.
