The majority of the helicopter scenes were shot using helos from my first squadron. I didn't fly in the scenes, but several friends did. I deployed with one of the helicopters used at the end and even two years after the movie was shot, we were still cleaning out the red dirt when we'd tear down the bird for maintenance.
During the shooting of those scenes, we were allowed on set and able to explore some of the areas where they were shooting, including the "African village" that was burned. There were "dead" bodies everywhere and even up close, it looked pretty well done. That village was also the same "African village" that Noah Wiley's character visited in the show ER.
