Max Allen points us to the US helicopters depicted in mola (plural molas), the traditional textile art form of the Kuna Indians of the San Blas Islands. The San Blas Island territory (properly referred to as “Kuna Yala” which is the local name) is on the north coast of the Isthmus of Panama. See Folk Art and Literature: a Weblog or the Wikipedia page for more details.
