Dr. Robert Winchester is a brilliant researcher and a former test pilot who helped design Airwolf. Now, he's asking for Hawke's help in test flying a simulator that he's designed to enable the Firm to train future test pilots to fly Airwolf. Reluctantly, Hawke agrees, but determines that the simulator's "feel" is a little off. Archangel convinces Hawke to let Winchester hook up the real Airwolf to his computers in order to get a more realistic demonstration. This allows Winchester to engage in a little friendly flying competition with Hawke but it also allows the Russians to nearly get their hands on the high tech super copter. Written by R. Bernard Ment

An Excellent Episode Wolf vs Wolf!
2 June 2008 | by (Fahaheel, Kuwait) – See all my reviews

Airwolf, of the little I watched TV in the mid 80's (I was busy with being at sea and when not at sea out on the town as a 21'sh man in So Cal and points along the Pacific), was unquestionably a favorite show of mine. So rewatching the episodes today I get a rush back to those days, it's just a love it or hate it show, kind of like the music of the 80's, if you lived the life then you are more likely to really be fond of it when it was "fresh". This episode is cool because we have a great nemesis in the form of David Carradine of Kung Fu fame (a show I grew up on in grammar and middle school, lol). The plot is a teaser to what actually happens but it's a very cool episode because there is a decent amount of character development involved and those are what makes a tech show such as a Star Trek or Air Wolf enjoyable. I liked the way it ended, unlike a show like Night Rider and A Team, Airwolf had deaths, it makes any attempt at drama a lot more believable. Umong the aerial shots we see Airwolf navigate a row of cones meant for a car! I don't think there will ever be a TV show that utilized so many real aircraft in it, its all CGI from here on boys. Very entertaining episode, 10 of 10.
