The X-Files: The Truth (2002) - Chris Carter wrote this storyline to finish the popular show in spectacular and quite dramatic fashion. Produced in two-part format, the BBC screened both episodes together as feature-length closure for cult phenomenon, The X-Files.

In the climactic action scenes, two black helicopter gunships (Eurocopter AS-355 Twin Star machines) firebomb the cliffside site of some American indian sacred caves to destroy secret evidence about the aliens.

Another A-star chopper was used as the camera-ship, and there's a Bell UH-1 Huey in the early sequence where hero FBI agent Mulder (David Duchovny) faces the tribunal at a top secret military base.
