Airwolf is the most sophisticated helicopter imaginable (flies halfway round the world, outruns jet planes). Stringfellow Hawke is its pilot, essentially blackmailing a secret US agency into finding his brother (lost in Vietnam) while he flies dangerous assignments for "The Firm."Written by

For the German broadcast, the unusual name "Stringfellow" Hawke was changed to the, still English, but more familiar "Huckleberry Hawke". See more »
Throughout the series, Airwolf is shown launching various missiles from three small tubes under the helicopter. These include the Copperhead (6 inch diameter x 54 inch length), Harpoon (13.5 inch diameter x 12.5 feet length), Hellfire (7 inch diameter x 64 inch length), and Maverick (12 inch diameter x 8 feet length). None of these missiles are small enough to fit into the tubes shown. All of the air-launched variants were mounted on hardpoints on the wings. The Copperhead was never used by aircraft, it is launched by artillery. See more »
What a great TV show, that deserves to have been made into a movie, the flying squences are great,the cast were so right. The only stain on the series are the people that tried to remake the series on a home movie budget and replaced all the actors from the original series. This is a show that deserves to be rerun for many years to come.
