The show is well known for its theme music that combined techno with a humming meant to invoke helicopter blades. It also includes some very impressive low-level helicopter flying. Airwolf itself was a Bell 222A helicopter with extensive cosmetic modifications to make it appear to be a futuristic military prototype, the actual aircraft was destroyed after the end of the series in a fatal crash while being used as an air ambulance.

* ScienceMarchesOn: One episode revolved a Vietnamese boy who was possibly Saint John's son. At the end of the episode, Archangel comments to String that it's too bad there's no way of determining for sure if the boy really is his nephew. In the mid-1980s, an entirely reasonable statement to make. In the present? Take DNA swabs from String and the boy in the morning and you could know if they were related by lunchtime.

** In a rather notable subversion in that same episode, especially considering the period in which the episode the written, the spy's family aren't thrilled to getting on Airwolf to begin a new life in the land of hotdogs and apple pie. They are all proud Russians and they don't take the news that the man they thought was a friend and family member is an American spy well, with both his daughter and his brother-in-law outright considering him a traitor. Yet they are portrayed mostly sympathetically.

* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: Justified because Airwolf ''is'' the prototype, and Dr. Moffet destroyed the facility where it was designed and manufactured in the pilot episode.

** Caitlin develops traces of this as well, considering the number of love interests she's had who have either died or revealed themselves as EvilAllAlong.

* MechaMooks: Thanks in great part to Hawk's flying skills, Airwolf destroys hordes of enemy helicopters in many episodes, frequently with individual components that are superior to Airwolf's. However, as the bumper sticker that clearly belongs on Airwolf's fuselage reads: "Outnumbered? Yes. Outgunned? Maybe. Outclassed? ''Never.''"
