Just recently, I bought DVD copies of a couple of TV movies, Deadly Encounter and Birds Of Prey, and it was great to see both of these classic helicopter thrillers, for coverage on my Rotary Action site. It's very much a case of 'those were the days...', when aerial cinematography reached new standards, and especially because the filmmakers (obviously) used real helicopters for the various daredevil stunt flying sequences, instead of the fakery we often get, today, from CGI effects.

I remember Deadly Encounter from many years ago, having seen it on day-time TV whilst I was off from school.

Kept on thinking that I didn't realise JR was also a helicopter pilot. :-)

Can't beat Blue Thunder, though.
