Panic In The City (1968) - in this Cold War spy thriller communist spies build an atomic bomb in the basement of a house in Los Angeles.

The hero drags the bomb out of the house, attaches it to the belly of the helicopter, and flies the helicopter with its lethal under-slung cargo out over the ocean.

The bomb goes off, the city is saved, but the hero sacrifices himself in the process. - HEGYI ISTVAN.

The climax of Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises pays tribute to this helicopter sequence.
