As before, the series' title referred to a remarkable, futuristic helicopter, equipped with state-of-the-art accessories and a full complement of weaponry, created on behalf of a secret government agency known as the Firm, but in the control of maverick pilot String Hawke (Jan-Michael Vincent). Although he had agreed to fly death-defying missions on behalf of the Firm, String refused to return Airwolf to them until they located his brother, St. John Hawke, who'd been missing in action since Vietnam. The season begins as String climbs into Airwolf for the purpose of rescuing St. John (portrayed by new cast member Barry Van Dyke) , whose whereabouts have at long last been confirmed. During this mission, String is seriously injured, whereupon St. John becomes the head of the Airwolf team (Jan-Michael Vincent had by this time left the series). Meanwhile, String's longtime partner Dom Santini (played in previous seasons by Ernest Borgnine) has been killed in an explosion, obliging his niece Jo (Michele Scarabelli) to take over her uncle's business, Santini Aviation. Jo also becomes St. John's partner in various missions, with hotheaded Major Mike Rivers (Geraint Wyn Davies) functioning as St. John's copilot. And yes, the team continues to take orders from the Firm -- or as it is now known, the Company -- but no longer from that organization's mysterious, ethereal liaison man Michael Archangel (played by Alex Cord). Their new contact man at the Company is Jason Locke, played by Anthony Sherwood. Although the production values and budgets of the USA Network Airwolf episodes suffered in comparison with the CBS episodes (studio facilities had shifted from California to Canada), the series still delivered full entertainment and excitement value -- especially when relying upon stock aviation footage from the series' first three seasons!
