Airwolf was a show ahead of it's time. It aired during the Cold War and was a dark show. It wasn't big on humour (which was a good thing)but it had plenty of intrigue, politics, betrayals etc and reflected accurately the real world where not everything is black and white and the good guys don't always wear white hats. Airwolf was a Mach 1 chopper which travelled round the world and in each episode, usually came up against either a plane of some sort of a helicopter (although not always). Airwolf had fourteen firepower options ranging from cannons to nuclear tipped strike missiles. It could outrace the fastet jets and go higher than most jets. It had an onboard computer with several features and was invisible to radar. In short, it was one bad dude (if a helicopter can be called a dude).
The pilot was Stringfellow Hawke played by Jan-Michael Vincent. Hawke was a moody and reclusive Vietnam veteran whose brother was MIA (missing in action). In the pilot, Hawke had retrieved Airwolf for the U.S. Government after it had ended up in Libya; however, rather than give it back, he kept it as collateral, the condition being that he would give it back to Uncle Sam if they could find his brother. Michael Archangel was a senior agent in The Firm (suspected to be the CIA but never actually referred to as such)and he covertly gave Hawke missions to fly all over the world. Joining Hawke was his avuncular friend Dominic Santini. Together, they kicked butt.
