Airwolf helicopter miniature on display...

In the 80's the vehicles were often the stars of some television shows, be it the talking car, KITT, in Knight Rider, the motorcycle in Street Hawk or in Airwolf's case the high-tech military helicopter.

The TV show ran from 1984 to 1987 for four seasons (although the final season was totally recast) and starred Jan-Michael Vincent and Ernest Borgnine undertaking various covert missions in the titular helicopter to an 80's synthesizer soundtrack.

  1. Never was this a screen used Airwolf helmets and the RC Chopper is not a original either. I know for a fact and own screen used props from the show including the helmet and the Larry Jolly RC. I have no idea who this poster is or what they think they can gain for being misleading

  2. Not trying to mislead anyone 'anonymous', just presenting what was on display at Universal Studios Hollywood from their own Universal/NBC archives. Maybe you should read more thoroughly before you start accusing people.
