CBS (ended 1987)




  • Season 1 Episode 12: To Snare a Wolf

  • The rocket launching the satellite at the beginning of the episode uses one of the same sound effects as used for Airwolf.

  • Some dialogue between Archangel and Hawke, from the scene where they meet for Archangel to warn of the danger of Bogard's satellite scan, is used in the opening trailer but is not used within the scene in the actual episodes. (Two lines - Hawke: "Maybe he will get me", Archangel: "(If) he gets you, he gets Airwolf")

  • The scene where Dominic picks Hawke up from the top of the B-52, where Hawke's just hidden Airwolf underneath the wing, is a good chance to spot a stunt double for Jan-Michael Vincent, and a pilot double for Ernest Borgnine.

  • The shots of the satellite in orbit are very unconvincing, using old methods of what looks like a cardboard / matte painting of the satellite in orbit of an equally unconvincing backdrop. (The shot is no doubt stock footage that is much older than this TV series!)

  • The rocket launching the satellite at the beginning of the episode uses one of the same sound effects as used for Airwolf.

  • Season 1 Episode 11: Mind of the Machine

  • The Airwolf model used for the simulation program, is actually the mock-up of the chopper used to film interior in-flight sequences for the series.

  • During the simulator-created shots of the two Airwolfs, a faint join can be seen down the middle of the shot, where two shots have been overlapped to create the effect of two Airwolfs.

  • While Hawke and Dom are "flying cold," Dom yells, "missile coming in!" There's no way to know that a missile is coming in if the systems aren't functioning and there's no way of seeing behind them.

  • Inaccuracy: Winchester tells Hawke that the telemetry pod has been in an F-15 at Mach 3. F-15 jets top out at Mach 2.5.

  • When Hawke and Dominic are in Airwolf chasing Alexei and Gloriana, Hawke's line "We'll play this one out even" stops dead, as if more dialogue followed it, but was edited out in post-production.

  • Unclear, but a possible blooper: When Alexei shoots Dr. Winchester, he appears to get shot on his left-hand side. Yet when we see Marella tending to his wound, it is on the right-hand side.

  • Season 1 Episode 10: And They Are Us

  • During the final battle, Airwolf is seen flying through explosions from cannons being fired by Butami's army on the ground.  But as the camera zooms out, smoke is seen on the ground from where the effects are really being fired from.

  • Vidor's armed, camouflaged helicopters used in this episode are the same ones seen in episode 'Bite of the Jackal' previously, and some stock shots of them from that episode are also used here.

  • During the scene where String and Vidor are talking and having a drink, if you listen closely, you can here someone's watch beeping (it could be either String's, Vidor's, or someone on the filming crew).

  • Season 1 Episode 9: Mad Over Miami

  • At the climax, seeing as Hawke fires a rocket at Sanchez's helicopter, which causes it to explode (model work), there is absolutely no wreckage on the ground in any of the following shots!

  • Season 1 Episode 8: Fight Like a Dove

  • The closing credits finish with a shot of Hawke and Sarah kissing; yet in the episode itself they never kiss.

  • Sarah LeBow somehow manages to track down Airwolf's location – though just how exactly is never explained in this episode. Seeing that the Firm, and countless other organisations are trying to find Airwolf, it seems curious that one woman alone could track it down. The only other time Airwolf's location would be unwantingly discovered by an outsider, was by sheer chance by a woman running from some killers, in the third season episode 'Discovery'.

  • Season 1 Episode 7: Echos From the Past

  • Nurse Susan gives the "real" date as Saturday March 3rd - This was actually the date this episode was first broadcast. (The date mentioned in the episode matches with the original date of broadcast once again in 'To Snare A Wolf' at the end of the season)

  • Goof: Michael Halsey's character in this episode is called Peter McGregor Moore, but at one point, Marella wrongly refers to him as Patrick McGregor Moore. (Interestingly, the DVD subtitles correct this mistake)

  • Normally when Airwolf's doors open or close, they give a loud hiss due to the pressurized cabin. Yet somehow, Dominic manages to open them silently and get the jump on Hawke's captors at the climax of this story.
