As Miller and his co-pilot were heading into Cairo, they managed to avoid a Sandwhale attack, but when Miller and Alpha Team reached Cairo, a Major Bio-mechanoid tried to shoot down the helicopter. Miller took evasive maneuvers to avoid the anti-air rockets. He managed to avoid a few rockets, but one hit the tail of his helicopter. The impact knocked Sam out of the helicopter because he was not wearing a seatbelt. Miller, like Rodriguez, Jones and his co-pilot, were found dead at the helicopter crash site in front of the Cairo museum.
