Airwolf

Storm Warning - S4-E18

Other mistake: General Butarra holds his pistol to St. John's head asking him where the diamonds are, dry firing it when he doesn't tell him, so the chamber must be empty. He then proceeds to load a magazine into the gun, but never chambers a round, and then proceeds to shoot the radio when it receives a storm alert broadcast. (00:28:40 - 00:29:11)

Ground Zero - S4-E14

Other mistake: When Hawke blows up Yahara's plane, we see that the video feed in the holding cell where Locke, Santini, and Rivers are is actually from a 3rd person perspective and that it continues, but according to previous dialogue (and video up to that point) the camera was installed on the plane, so once Hawke blew the plane up, there should have been no more video feed. (00:40:35)

Santini's Millions - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: Just as Santini lands his helicopter after his rear rotor was destroyed, Hawke gets into his jeep and drives off. The number plate (licence) is reversed and Hawke's steering wheel is on the right side like British vehicles are. The next shot you see the shot has been flipped the correct way with both plate and steering wheel on the left side. (00:24:14)

Airwolf (a.k.a. Shadow of the Hawke) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Hawke lands the helicopter during the film shoot, you see that the person in the left seat is handling the controls of the chopper normally, left hand on the collective, right one on the cyclic. In the next shot, the actor in the police uniform, sitting in the left seat, hides his face behind his arms and does not touch the controls at all.

Proof Through the Night - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: As Hawke uses the Star Light Amplification System to see where he's flying, the readout shows what he's looking at. The electronic compass readout at the top of the display doesn't move, even though the picture shows that he's constantly twisting and turning, following the terrain.

Proof Through the Night - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: As the camera flies over the ranch and house (simulating Airwolf's flight), the camera chopper's left skid is visible in the lower left corner of the shot. Airwolf is a Bell 222 with added features, and doesn't have skids.

HX-1 - S2-E8

Other mistake: During the helicopter chase at the end a pilot can be seen in Airwolf's left seat although Hawke is sitting on the right side and Santini in the back.

HX-1 - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: For most of the flight shots, Mace is shown in the right seat. Part way through the chase, he's shown in the left seat, and everything is reversed.

Movie Nut

Sweet Britches - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When String tells Dominic about his plans to act on the phone call, Dominic says that things had been quiet for two months. When they're proceeding from liftoff in Airwolf, he said that three months hadn't harmed her, referring to Airwolf.

Movie Nut

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Flight scenes and especially dog fights seem to have no continuity at all. Altitude changes from scene to scene between extreme low-level to altitudes above 10,000 ft. and back. Airwolf's weapon bays are open, then closed, etc.

Dominic Santini: Why can't we hover like regular helicopter people?

More quotes from Airwolf

HX-1 - S2-E8

Question: Hawk asks Mace where St. John is both before he gets knocked out and sent to the desert, and in the scene where Mace is demonstrating the helicopter they stole capabilities. But Mace won't tell him. Why not just capture Mace and water-board him to force him to tell him where St. John is? Or inject a truth serum into Mace?

Answer: No truth serum has proven to make a person tell the truth. Regarding capturing Mace, and forcing him to tell him where St. John is by water boarding him, People subject to torment such as water boarding are not likely to tell the truth, so Mace would probably lie.
