Airwolf

NIFTY BLACK futurocopter saga with none-more-eighties JAN MICHAEL-VINCENT as cello-playing loner maverick Stringfellow Hawke, piloting eponymous supersonic, rader-evading chopper nicked from the US government, which he won’t give back until they locate his equally implausibly monickered brother St John Hawke who’s MIA. Michael Archangel (ALEX CORD), CIA type with cane and eyepatch gave the orders via The Firm; also on board were token easy-on-eye female recruit Caitlin and ERNEST BORGNINE (yazzah!) as old-school boss-mentor blokey. Final series saw St John fortuitously located, just as Michael-Vincent bailed out.
