Supercopter (or Airwolf in English) is an American television series created by Donald P. Bellisario and broadcast between 1984 and 1987 on the CBS network. The series follows the adventures of a group of secret agents who use a high-tech combat helicopter called Airwolf to accomplish dangerous missions around the world.

The main character in the series is a helicopter pilot named Stringen Hawke, a lonely who made a pact with the American government to find his twin brother, Saint John, who was captured by a group of mysterious enemies in exchange for The use of the Airwolf. Hawke is helped in his missions by a CIA team made up of the special agent Gabrielle "Gabby" Hayes and the chief engineer and technology expert, Dr. Charles Henry Moffet.

Over the episodes, Hawke and his team face a variety of opponents, ranging from international terrorists to double agents within the government agency for which they work. They use Airwolf, an overpowered helicopter equipped with high-tech weapons and advanced monitoring devices, to accomplish their difficult and dangerous missions.

In addition to its combat capacities, Airwolf is also able to fly at supersonic speeds and camouflage itself thanks to an electronic camouflage system. However, due to its power, the helicopter is often considered a dangerous and unpredictable weapon, and Hawke must constantly fight to keep control of the aircraft and prevent it from falling into bad hands.

During the series, Hawke and his team face many enemies such as the organization, an international terrorist group led by a mysterious figure known as "the general", and the Archangel, a double agent within The CIA seeking to seize the Airwolf for its own ends. Despite the obstacles and the dangers they encounter, Hawke and his team remain determined to accomplish their mission and to use Airwolf to protect the world from the constant threat of evil.

Trivia

There was a 4th season of Supercopter called "Airwolf 2" which takes place without the two main actors and which tells the adventures of the brother of Stringfellow Hawke: St John and the daughter of Dominic Santini.

Saint John is found and takes the place of Hawke, succumbing to his injuries following the attack that kills Dominic Santini to "Santini Air".

Airwolf is made in Bel Ranger 222.

The name of Archangel is: Michael Goldsmith III.

In the pilot episode, not to say Airwolf in front of Archangel's agent, Stringfellow Hawke said "I found a place for Bellisario and his film", Bellisario being the producer.

The role of St John Hawke is played by Barry Van Dick, son of Dick Van Dick with whom he plays in "Diagnostic murder".

Small novelty in Airwolf 2, the pilot can pilot Airwolf thanks to the helmet, by thought.

David Carradine (Kung Fu) was one of Airwolf's guest stars, he played the role of a scientist who had created a double of red and black supercopter that he had baptized the scorpion.

Two members of the "burned heads" made an appearance in "Airwolf": W.K. Straton (casey in the "burned heads") in the pilot episode and James Whitemore (Guterman in the "Bruled Têtes")

We can note the presence of Hebert Jefferson Jr, who plays the role of Boomer in "Galactica", in the pilot episode of Airwolf

In the 1st episode, you can see a very big default, when Airwolf goes over a fishing boat to destroy an American destroyer (Airwolf is still piloted by Moffet at that time), the shadow does not correspond Nothing in Airwolf, indeed Supercopter is lying down and smooth below (its atterritain trains have returned), while the shadow is in rounded shape and has feet.
