Storyline

Dr. Robert Winchester is a brilliant researcher and a former test pilot who helped design Airwolf. Now, he's asking for Hawke's help in test flying a simulator that he's designed to enable the Firm to train future test pilots to fly Airwolf. Reluctantly, Hawke agrees, but determines that the simulator's "feel" is a little off. Archangel convinces Hawke to let Winchester hook up the real Airwolf to his computers in order to get a more realistic demonstration. This allows Winchester to engage in a little friendly flying competition with Hawke but it also allows the Russians to nearly get their hands on the high tech super copter. Written by R. Bernard Ment

David Carradine joins the cast and not a kung fu kick in sight. I think the producers took a risk with the casting, Carradine surely would had given tips to Jan-Michael Vincent as to how to up his game as a hellraiser.

Carradine rather improbably plays Dr Robert Winchester a former test pilot who helped design Airwolf but now testing an advanced simulator that mimics Airwolf in order to train future pilots to fly Airwolf.

The real Airwolf is hooked up to the simulator to improve its programming but it also allows a Soviet agent to attempt to steal Airwolf.

Carradine does give this episode an edge as you wonder if he is a baddie or not. The lighted cords that hook up the computers must have been discarded from the television series of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.
