Did You Know?


Hawke broke his right arm after crashing a plane into a barn and Dom injured his back. Hawke sneaks Dom out of the hospital with Cate's help wearing a sling. When the three of them are in Airwolf heading to East Germany, Hawke is flying Airwolf just fine as if his arm is not broken. After they land (off-camera), Hawke is seen in East Berlin wearing the sling again and confronts Maria. He says he broke his arm to her. See more »

My favorite Airwolf Episode
28 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've never forgotten this episode! The supersonic jaunts to East Germany provide both a fast pace and some of the series' best Cold-War intrigue. Double-crossing and brainwashing are afoot when String, Caitlin and Dom jet off behind the Iron Curtain to find Archangel's whereabouts. "Fallen Angel" has its share of contrived moments, of course, but Airwolf is an hour-long series after all. Humorous bits keep things from getting too heavy, especially between Dom and Caitlin.

This episode is one of the reasons why Airwolf is still one of my favorite '80s memories. I was a bit, but only a bit, disappointed with CBS's decision to lean more towards domestic human interest episodes. Yet there was still plenty of adventure and intrigue to look forward to, until the show's untimely cancellation in 1986. Even in 2015, some of us can still watch the show and think, I gotta get me one of those!
