[show]Goof (factual errors): Throughout the series, Airwolf is shown launching various missiles from three small tubes under the helicopter. These include the Copperhead (6 inch diameter x 54 inch length), Harpoon (13.5 inch diameter x 12.5 feet length), Hellfire (7 inch diameter x 64 inch length), and Maverick (12 inch diameter x 8 feet length). None of these missiles are small enough to fit into the tubes shown. All of the air-launched variants were mounted on hardpoints on the wings. The Copperhead was never used by aircraft, it is launched by artillery.
- After the show was canceled the chopper was sold to a German firm. Airwolf - as a Bell 222 - flew as an air ambulance. On 9 June 1992 it crashed during a thunderstorm, killing all three crew members.
