Airwolf

Sweet Britches - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When String uses Airwolf's rotor wash to blow over the pickup, when the camera is on the truck, you can see a cable pulling the truck up from the right side.

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

Continuity mistake: When Stringfellow and Dominic first board Airwolf at the Libyan base, String gets in on Airwolf's right side, and pilots from there. When they land to rescue Gabrielle in the desert, he is in the left hand seat as the chopper lands and gets out of the left hand side.

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.

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.

Sweet Britches - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Hawke is first seen running on the ranch, his shirt is intact. A moment later, it's torn on the back, and the sleeve is ripped off.

Proof Through the Night - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: As Airwolf flies at high speed across the countryside to get away from Russia, the shadow of the camera chopper can be seen on the ground, rather than the Bell 222 Airwolf.

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.

Movie Nut

Proof Through the Night - S1-E4

Character mistake: Dominic said the MIGs were coming in 015° but the readout says 105°. If they were at heading from 015, the triangles representing them would be in the upper right quadrant of the radar circle, close to the zero.

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.

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

Revealing mistake: As the camera has a closeup on Moffet driving the jeep, the shadow of the camera rig plays across the windshield.

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

Continuity mistake: In the courtyard of the palace, String has the weapons activated. A moment later, the gun pods are closed, then open again.

Natural Born - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: During the final battle Airwolf shoots a Bell UH-1. In the following explosion shot a Hughes OH-6 is blown up.

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

Airwolf II - S3-E2

Factual error: The computer mistakes a private airplane for a MIG-23, however the picture on the screen of a MIG-23 is completely wrong, it shows a French Dassault Super Mystere.
