The series has been revamped with an all new cast: St. John, the brother whom Stringfellow Hawke had been looking for during the original series, has finally been found and is now the new pilot of the high tech helicopter; Jo, Dominic Santini's niece, is also part of the team; Jason Locke is the new contact at the agency; and Mike Rivers is a hotshot pilot. In it after finding Hawke, they decide to continue the deal that Stringfellow Hawke had with the agency: they keep Airwolf location a secret and will go on missions for the agency. Written by
The budget was so small, the production couldn't afford the titular helicopter. All scenes of the actors interacting with Airwolf used a prop mock-up of the aircraft. Reedited footage of Airwolf in flight from the original series did the rest. See more »
I saw one episode of this new series and it was awful. The action shots
all from the original series. Airwolf in this series tends to take a
distant back seat and the programme concentrates more on irrelevant
storylines. It looks like the producers and writers had used Airwolf's
to get the programme on the television.
