  • Season 2 Episode 6: Sins of the Past

  • 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.

  • Season 2 Episode 5: The Hunted

  • 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.

  • Season 2 Episode 4: The Truth About Holly

  • 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.

  • Season 2 Episode 3: Moffett's Ghost

  • 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.

  • Season 2 Episode 2: Firestorm

  • 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.

  • When Hawke goes to get Airwolf from the lair, he is wearing his flightsuit as he takes off. In the next shot, however, and for the remainder of the flying scenes, he is wearing the shirt and jeans he was wearing when he went to the lair.

  • When Hawke, on his way to Eddie's cabin, forces the first of the two jeeps off of the road, look towards the bottom of the picture – there are three people in the middle of nowhere, that seem to be film crew!

  • Season 2 Episode 1: Sweet Britches

  • The bi-plane that we see Dominic working on when we first see him and Hawke in this episodes looks as if it's probably the same one used in 'To Snare A Wolf'. (As we never found out what happened to Toni, the owner of the plane, after that episode, it's not clear whether it's meant to be the same plane within the context of the series).

  • With the new season, Hawke and Dominic have new Airwolf flight-suits. More silvery-grey in colour that the bluey-grey ones of the first season, their other main distinguishing difference is the much higher collar. This style of fight-suit would be used for the rest of the show's run, including when Caitlin joined the Airwolf pilot crew, and onto the Canadian-filmed 4th season.

  • The two bullet hole cracks that Sheriff Bogan fires into the windshield of Caitlin's helicopter during the story's climax, seem to have disappeared in following shots.

  • Nitpick: At Santini Air, Dominic comments that it's been a nice quiet two months without any Firm/Airwolf missions, yet in the Lair as they retrieve Airwolf, he comments that "three months" doesn't seem to have affected her. (In fairness, it could just be assumed that he's just giving a rough estimate to how long they've been out of action).
