As part of a deal with an intelligence agency to look for his missing brother, a renegade pilot goes on missions with an advanced battle helicopter.
During filming, a Huey helicopter crashed during a maneuver in Pico Canyon in California. Reid Rondell, Jan-Michael Vincent's stunt double, was killed. A special credit at the end of the episode dedicated it to him.
Why not let those people mow their own lawns, huh?
Throughout the series, Airwolf is shown launching various missiles from three small tubes under the helicopter. These include the Copperhead (6 inch diameter x 54 inch length), Harpoon (13.5 inch diameter x 12.5 feet length), Hellfire (7 inch diameter x 64 inch length), and Maverick (12 inch diameter x 8 feet length). None of these missiles are small enough to fit into the tubes shown. All of the air-launched variants were mounted on hardpoints on the wings. The Copperhead was never used by aircraft, it is launched by artillery.
In the Italian version Hawke's surname is "Stradivarius".
