Vietnam veteran Stringfellow Hawke (Jan-Michael Vincent) steals a military grade helicopter from its traitorous creator and uses it to fight evil with the help of mentor Dominic Santini (Ernest Borgnine). Archangel (Alex Cord) watches over them from a shadowy government agency known as The Firm, assisted by first lieutenant Marella (Deborah Pratt) and others. And feisty co-pilot Caitlin O’Shannessy (Jean Bruce Scott) keeps everybody flying on the straight and narrow.
Airwolf is a drama loaded with action and adventure thanks to its true star - a science-fiction helicopter named Airwolf. Nicknamed “The Lady,” Jan-Michael Vincent plays its reclusive pilot Stringfellow Hawke and veteran actor Ernest Borgnine is co-pilot Dominic Santini. The storylines in Airwolf are full of espionage and danger, but they also focus on friendship and trust. The ongoing success of the show is not surprising considering that it was created by Donald P.
