The biggest 'star' in this little telemovie is the plane! The best actor too!, 25 November 2001
Author: Noel Bailey ( from Longmont: Colorado US

Remarkably underwhelming little number, looking suspiciously like a pilot movie although it WAS originally mooted to be for theatrical release before the makers came to their senses and hung in there with just a TV screening, ratings for which justified the move. (It has barely been seen since!)

The rather enterprisingly titled AIR HAWK concerns little more than the somewhat illegal habits of an outback pilot whose main claim to fame is that he smuggles diamonds for a living.

The Ron Mclean / Colin Eggleston co-production never made the television hall of fame, nor did the actors!
