While demonstrating the capabilities of the new prototype supercopter codenamed 'Airwolf', Dr. Charles Moffet goes rogue, steals the chopper and kills almost all of the observers. At least one man -- Michael Coldsmith Briggs III survives. Briggs, codenamed 'Archangel' is the head of a covert organization called 'The Firm' and Archangel calls upon the one man in the world he knows that can retrieve the copter. The problem is Stringfellow Hawke is not only a loner, but a recluse as well. The amount of money the Firm is willing to pay for Airwolf's recovery is irrelevant. Hawke wants just one thing - the safe return of his brother, Saint John, who was captured during the Vietnam war and is evidently a POW. Written by

When identifying the ship Airwolf is about to destroy, the screen identifies it as an Adams-class destroyer, but the co-pilot calls it a Knox-class destroyer. While the Adams-class of ships are properly destroyers, the Knox-class of ships are frigates, not destroyers. And neither of those two ships are what Airwolf actually destroys. Both classes of ships are single stack, steam driven with a single forward 5-inch gun. The ship Airwolf shoots is a dual stack diesel with two forward guns. See more
