A repurposed helicopter tail rotor . . .
The invasion proves to be a trap. Cage, despite his inexperience, manages to kill an unusually large Mimic with explosives and dies covered with its blood. He wakes up and finds himself back at Heathrow the previous morning. No one believes his story that the invasion is doomed. Cage repeats the loop of dying on the beach and waking at Heathrow over and over again, becoming more competent in combat and learning to predict what happens. In one loop, he encounters the famous Sergeant Rita Vrataski (the "Angel of Verdun") during the invasion. When she sees he knows the movements of an attacking Mimic in advance, she tells him to locate her the next time he "wakes up"; they both perish in an explosion.
