Trivia

The budget was so small at only $300,000 per episode (compared to over $1m on original CBS show), the production couldn't afford the real helicopter (aka "76S"). All scenes of the actors interacting with Airwolf used the studio mock-up (aka "88K") of the aircraft. Re-edited (plus unused B-Roll) footage of Airwolf in flight from the original series did the rest.

In 2013-2014, the original Standard Definition prints were adjusted by Universal Studios (on a limited, fixed budget over 6 months) by bringing in one of the original film editors (now deceased) to find and replace as much of the Standard Definition footage of Airwolf in flight as possible, with the new 2014 HD masters of the 35mm (2nd Unit) footage.

A disgrace
18 October 1998 | by Hawke-3See all my reviews

This 'new' series is an insult to the people involved in the original "Airwolf" series (1984-1987). All of the 'action' sequences are rip offs from the original series, the money spent on locations, sets and special effects must have been calculated in pennies (Cents) rather than the million dollars they spent on the original series. Barry van Dyke, Michelle Scarabelli and Gerwaint Wyn Davies are no replacements for Jan Michael Vincent, Jean Bruce Scott, Ernest Borgnine and Alex Cord. This show has managed to turn a classic of the 80's into a laughing stock.
