    Notes on the first episode (here at TV.com) state indicate the song may have been "Hawkman Battle Theme" from the Flash Gordon (1980) film soundtrack, music by Queen.

    The song you are talking about was apart of the score from Sylvester Levay.

    Levay's actual version was only available on CD-2 of a two-CD set, called "Airwolf Themes" that was released exclusively in the "Airwolf" fan world back from 1999-2001. The soundtrack is LONG out-of-print, and was only limited to 1,000 copies. You can try EBay, although the album's producer Mark Cairns, and his website www.airwolfthemes.com have been talking recently about re-releasing the soundtrack for download on iTunes.

    The track you are referring to was simply titled... "Gabrielle's Theme" - Sylvester Levay.

    Well that's good, because the re-release on iTunes may be available as early as late this summer.

    The only issue i'm wondering, is see the 2-CD set was by two different artists. CD 1 was a rearrangment of Levay's work primarily, performed by Mark Cairns. CD 2 was done by Levay, and only featured a few tracks, but see legalities can make it weird.

    I don't know if it's a release of the full set, or just a re-release of CD 1.

    The iTunes re-release with also contain Levay's CD 2, and the track mentioned. So keep your eyes peeled to iTunes this summer/fall.

    The 'Airwolf Themes' soundtrack is finally being re-released in late December 2007. They've digitally remastered and remixed it and will be releasing it on Apple iTunes Store and Pinnacle-Digital.com amongst others then. You can find the latest details, MP3 teasers of all the tracks (including previews of the sequel Airwolf Themes soundtrack with MP3s of the main theme) on http://www.airwolfthemes.com/latestnews.html
