When Eddie, a chronically drunk friend of Dom's, spouts off about UFO-type lights he's been seeing near his desert trailer, everyone writes him off as a crackpot until one night while taking Eddie home, Dom spots them, too. He and String investigate and discover a military compound nearby headed by a renegade general who is planning a preemptive nuclear strike against the Soviet Union. Unfortunately, while escaping, Dom is shot and it's up to Eddie to ride shotgun aboard Airwolf with String even though he doesn't believe he can do what may be asked of him. Written by R. Bernard Ment

Major edit goof
10 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When String, Dominick and his friend escape from a missile base String is in jeans and a button down shirt. When he gets to the lair and gets on or in to Airwolf you see him zipping up his flight suit and putting on his helmet. When String lands at Doms friends house trailer you see him step out back in his jeans and shirt. You have to admit that Belasarious has a very creative mind when it comes to his shows. I tried to give him a plot to work with while Jag was still on Network TV but his production company pooh poohed me. I must say that most of the scenarios of his show make one wonder. I mean Does a chopper like Airwolf really exist? Is it like Kitt on Knight Rider? I mean both were fast and both were bullet proof.
