What used to be called the "helicopter" is one of the throws out of kata guruma.

With respect to the question at hand, it could well be kata guruma or the upside down (uke's back across nage's shoulders) version called ganseki otoshi.

I've seen film of Kondo Sensei helicopter his uke off from ganseki otoshi. She landed flat on her back and got right back up which must have been pretty tough.
