During the phone call scene in the Lair, Sinjin and Jason are wearing the same clothing as they did in the phone call scene in "Escape."
The laser device used by Lundahl at the episode's climax is the same device used in Knight Rider's season 3 episode Knight Strike.
When Mike and Jason are on their way to the factory, they pull up Lundahl's profile on the computer. Notice that there is a misspelling. It says: Lundahl Incorporated Sole Owner: Martin Lundhal.
This episode is the first time we see (what is supposedly) Jason's hand grip Airwolf's yoke, it is quite clearly the footage used for Stringfellow Hawke's hand from the original series, used with a tint to try and match Jason's dark skin.
(Also, the shot is quite clearly on the right-hand side of Airwolf, whereas Jason is sitting on the left). This shot would be used again numerous times throughout the season.
Nitpick: At the climax, why does Jason talk out loud (as Airwolf is hit, as he fiddles with the wires, etc.)? He's the only one on board, and Mike, St. John and Jo are in the Sheriff's truck escaping, so who's going to hear him?!
Early on in the episode, when Jo is first arrested and talking to the federal agents, she already has a split lip, although she isn't slapped until a few scenes later.
In this new version, despite seemingly the same organization, The Firm is now for some reason suddenly called 'The Company'. The infamous white suits are also gone.
This episode contains the last (rather short) newly shot footage of Airwolf (chasing the "Catman") in the series.
Absolutely nothing is blown up in this episode by Airwolf, or any other aircraft.
Most of the aerial footage for this episode's final aerial sequence is taken from the episode Jennie (when Airwolf comes in to pick up String from the village).
Nitpick: When Hawke, visiting the prison camp pretending to be Terry's uncle, reveals to Terry who he really is, he says it loud enough for any of the surrounding prisoners to hear. Surely he'd want to keep it as quiet as possible – information like that would be valuable for the less desirable prisoners to bribe the guards with!
When Caitlin retrieves Airwolf from the Lair, when she engages the turbos, the turbos sound effect seems to kick in a noticeable split-second too early!
This is the only episode of the original three seasons that Hawke does not pilot Airwolf in. Dominic is seen to pilot The Lady, while Hawke is seen at the controls of another chopper as they try to free the hostages from the seige.
GOOF: When Caitlin is set in front of the door by a hostage taker, she isn't wearing earrings. When the scene flips from Hawke back to Caitlin, she mysteriously has earrings on to send her Morse code message.
The story in this episode is a reach for Airwolf. What makes it worse (and rather unrealistic) is that they have a baby inside Airwolf during the aerial battle. Those Mach1+ g-forces that come along with String's maneuvering would seriously injury the baby easily.
The sequence where Airwolf comes under attack from two choppers is much recycled footage from the Pilot – including a couple shots of Hawke and Dominic; if you look carefully, you can see their first season style uniforms (particularly as Dom gives Hawke thumbs up for destroying one of the choppers).
After Airwolf has destroyed the attacking choppers, we see the chain-guns and cannons to be folding back in – but in the very next (stock) shot, they're out!
When Airwolf comes under attack from the two jets whilst under auto-pilot control from the Firm, Dominic and Hawke desperately try to release the chain-guns and cannons – yet in all exterior shots, they are out!
When Dominic finds and unties Little Cec, he tell Dominic that Flowers and Moose left in a 4x4. This doesn't make sense, when he was thrown into a trailer and couldn't see what they left in. Further, Flowers and Moose were away from the refinery when the 4x4 picked them up.
Obviously at this point, Airwolf's top secret status has become either a decreased priority, or a writer's oversight, because the Airwolf crew enlist the assistance of a friend to help do maintenance on it, which normally would strictly be String and Dom's responsibility.
