Airwolf (1984)

8 mistakes in season 1

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.

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 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.

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.
