Resident Evil: Retribution rotorcraft squadrons

Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) - this action movie sequel begins with a sky full of tilt-rotor aircraft (a sci-fi stealth version of the Boeing V-22 Osprey, as seen previously in Resident Evil: Afterlife), which attack survivors on the deck of a cargo tanker.

While the heroine starts shooting, death squads of commando troops descend via ropes to join the mle fighting, and the blonde villainess also drops via cables from the rear door of a hovering aircraft.

One of the hi-tech Ospreys is hit by shotgun blasts, shattering the cockpit and wounding the pilots, and so the damaged aircraft plunges to explode on impact, knocking the fleeing heroine off the big ship's deck and into sea.

This bravura special effects sequence plays in reverse slow-motion, the first time we see it. But the action repeats, playing forwards at normal speed, after the split-screen video narration of a recap intro by heroine Alice (Milla Jovovich).

The wreckage of a Raccoon City TV news chopper (a Bell 206 JetRanger) is seen in the foreground during the heroine's escape from and later return to, a zombie infested nightmare in the 'suburbia' testing environment.

White House under siege in Resident Evil 5

A big military helicopter, probably a CH-53 (Sikorsky S-65), appears for medevac duty on the ice, near the submarine, after the climactic fighting, and it transports the remaining heroes to Washington, D.C. - where several gunships (including Cobra and Osprey types) circle a fortified White House, to engage in aerial combat against flying reptile monsters, and hordes of zombies, across Capitol Hill.
