The officer that is taking Dom's mug shot tells him to turn and face the wall. Not only does he not face the wall, but has his back to the wall, the officer does not say anything and proceeds to take the picture.
When Vincent gets out of the Jeep and walks into the church for the funeral, you notice he does not use his right arm to climb out of the vehicle and open the church door, as his right arms appears limp.
Watch Jan-Michael Vincent's stunt double slip and nearly fall and hurt himself during the fight at night as he purses the intruder outside!
After Vince takes a swing at Hawke and falls off the bar chair, watch Hawke's arm as he reaches down to pull him up – it's actually a "double"s arm, due to JMV having a broken arm, and isn't wearing the bracelet that Hawke is wearing!
As mentioned under Notes, Jan-Michael Vincent broke his arm off-set during the filming of this episode. Watch when Hawke goes to leave Archangel's office – he opens the left-hand double-door, but he doesn't (appear to) touch the right-side one – it opens itself (presumably it was opened by some other means, to try and cover the fact that he couldn't use his right arm).
When Dom's ex-wife Lila drops the locket that he has gone to collect, in the close-up of it falling to the ground, the chain lands in a different position to than in the next shot, as Dom bends over to pick it up.
(Also, in the close up, the carpet seems to be a different shade, but this is probably just due to the different lighting on the shot)
As Airwolf takes off from the Lair, there is a shot of Dominic in his usual place in the rear of the chopper, yet just a couple of shots later, as the Lady is still rising from the Lair, he is seen seated next to Hawke (where he remains for the rest of the flight). The first shot seems to be taken from slightly later in the story, when they go on the secret mission for the Firm.
This is the only episode where we get to see Caitlin's apartment.
During the aerial dog-fight at the climax, several very noticeable reversed shots of Hawke, as well Dom (and the computer bank beside him), and Airwolf herself, are reversed.
The photos that Robert develops includes a familiar stock photo of Jan-Michael Vincent – his hair is noticeably longer (1st season style) than it is in this episode! There's no way Robert could have taken this picture.
Cailin O'Shaughnessy makes her appearance in L.A., following the events in Pope County, Texas.
Just before Dom comes to the rescue in Airwolf to pick up Hawke and Dom's niece, Hawke turns around, followed by a shot of purseuing soliders, and then the next shot shows Barbara Howard's stuntdouble nearly tripping over.
Dom tells Hawke that an F-14s is behind them, but the planes in the scene are actually F-15 eagles.
Moffett's full name (ungiven in the Pilot) is confirmed here as Dr. Charles Henry Moffett.
As Airwolf shuttles the U.S. scientist to the secret meeting in Siberia, Russia, you see them leave the frozen tundra of Alaska, then see the ice cliffs of Siberia, only to view them land on a warm sandy beach, with no ice or snow, obviously filmed on a southern Californian coast.
When Dr Hansen is watching the video clip of Archangel, she's using a 5.25" floppy disc. There's no way a disc of that capacity could hold a full screen 30 second video!
Right at the end after the crew believe they've rid Airwolf of Moffett's Ghost, you see the Auto Pilot light begin to illuminate - but the panel doesn't have any snow and ice on it like everything else in the cockpit.
The fourth season episode 'Salvage' re-works much of the premise of this episode, with a disturbed character living alone in a deserted area seeing strange lights and hearing strange noises in the middle of the night. (In that case, the cause was a hi-tech helicopter, in an excuse to recycle footage from the third season episode 'Airwolf II').
When Hawke and Dominic are surveying the desert in Airwolf to see if they can find any clues to Eddie's alleged sightings, Dom records their surveillance pictures on a Compact Disk – something that would be the very cutting edge of technology then in 1984, that is nowadays common-place on home computers. (And not only can you record on CDs now, you can watch this episode on one – and the season's been released on DVD in the UK too!)
Hawke states that he can fly Airwolf alone, but needs someone to bring the munitions online. Yet in the episode "Sins of the Past", he is quite capable of single-handedly blowing the snot out of the casino. Either this is a goof, or Hawke told Eddie a little white lie in order to get him to believe in himself again.
