Yakuza Weapon (2011) - this Japanese comedy horror sees the hero's arm hacked off by the Gatling guns of a Black Hawk helicopter (entirely CGI), and the villains escape in their gunship from a rooftop but, even while injured, the gangster hero fires a grenade to shoot down the getaway chopper over the city skyline.



YatterMan (2009) - Takashi Miike's live-action cartoon whimsy features a CGI mini-rotorcraft Toybotty, which hovers around the superheroes' underground toy workshop base, and goes on quest missions to help find the prize skull stone.

Yesterday (2002) - this Korean sci-fi actioner features a Bell 204 'Huey' in an opening sequence, and there's also a Boeing MD-500 Defender in later scenes, including a jetty where the kidnapped police chief's body is found.



You Don't Mess With The Zohan (2008) - a Huey picks up the Israeli superhero soldier from a beach during the opening sequence of this distinctly unfunny 'comedy' starring irksome nitwit Adam Sandler.

You Only Live Twice star (1967) - here's another James Bond movie with great rotary action, including 007's autogyro...
Little Nellie in You Only Live Twice 007 faces attacking helicopters James Bond pilots Little Nellie into combat
Sean Connery's original British super-spy pilots heavily-armed 'Little Nellie' (it's actually a Wallis WA-116 autogyro), which is delivered in packing crates while Bond is on a mission overseas). On a recon flight, he deals with four attacking helicopters (these are Kawasaki-Bell 47G-3, which is a licence-built version of the world famous Bell 47), causing two of them to collide in midair! This movie also has the amusing scene where a mighty twin-rotor chopper (the Kawasaki KV-107II, a licence-built Boeing CH-46 Sea Knight) uses a powerful electromagnet to airlift the gunmen's car off the coast road, when Bond is pursued by some killers, and it drops the bad guys' vehicle into the sea.

Notes: "Other helicopters appearing in You Only Live Twice... a Brantley B2 is used as an air-taxi to reach Blofeld's (Donald Pleasence) secret hideout in a volcano, and a French-built Aerospatiale Alouette 316B ferries Bond to the ninja training area." - NATHAN DECKER
