NOTES
As part of a deal with an intelligence agency to look for his missing brother, a renegade pilot goes on missions with an advanced battle helicopter.

The flying airwolf helicopter was actually a Bell 222, serial number 47085, sometimes unofficially called a Bell 222A.

During filming of the series, the helicopter was owned by Jetcopters, Inc. of Van Nuys, California

The concept behind Airwolf was a supersonic armed helicopter that could be disguised as a civilian vehicle — "a wolf in sheep's clothing". Andrew Probert designed the Airwolf uniform insignia patch worn by the flight crew members, a snarling bat-winged wolf's head wearing a sheepskin. (below)

After the show was canceled, the helicopter was sold to a German company.
Airwolf - as a Bell 222 - flew as an air ambulance but sadly on 9 June 1992 it crashed during a thunderstorm, killing all three crew members.
