Special and Visual Effects : Plane propeller + helicopter blade deaths

Plane propeller + helicopter blade deaths

Let's list airplane propeller and helicopter blade (plus I'll toss in getting sucked into jet engine intake) deaths in movies. I'll start off with the plane propeller death in Raiders of the Lost Ark and the helicopter blade chop in Last Boy Scout. Others?

Syndrome from The Incredibles gets sucked into a jet engine, Dawn of the Dead a zombie gets the top of his head cut off by a helicopter blade, Gustav Graves the villain from Die Another Day was sucked into a jet engine, and Captain America one of Red Skull's minions is knocked into a helicopter and ripped to shreds.

Not a movie but in the first episode of Lost I'm pretty sure someone gets sucked into the plane engine.

Off the top of my head, some spoilers obviously:

Fast & Furious 6
When Dominic and his pals in their cars are chasing the plane on the runway at the end of the film, a bad guy is sucked into a jet engine whilst fighting someone in a car.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Some random worker is thrown into a jet engine which then causes the plane to explode, I hate it when that happens!

Expendables 2
During the fight between Jason Statham and Scott Adkins, Scott is punched so hard with knuckle dusters he falls back into a spinning tail rotor of a helicopter, can't beat a classic!

On Deadly Ground
In an aircraft hanger near the end of the film, John C McGingley's character lunges at Sensei Seagal who re-directs him into the tail rotor of a helicopter.

28 Weeks Later
Harrold Perrineu's character pitches down with his helicopter to mince a field full of infected, with sexy results.

Hitman: Agent 47
Judging from the trailer, it looks like there is a scene of SWAT members being chewed up by a jet engine as well as people in an office building being diced by helicopter blades.

Shoot Em Up
An Agent falling from a plane, lands on helicopter. You see his arm and other bits and bobs in the next scene.

Stuart Little 2
Doesn't James Wood's voiced character get hit by the propellers of the plane Melanie Griffith's voice character flies?

If I think of any more I'll post them.

You can't forget that Vic Morrow and child actor Myca Dinh Le were decapitated for real on the set of "Twilight Zone: The Movie" (1983) on July 23, 1982.
