File A56-7W briefing
Four subtly distinct reprise briefings were played at the beginning of first season episodes five through eleven. Read by Lance LeGault, each briefing helped new viewers pick up the series back-story. Here you'll find the details contained within each briefing.
BRIEFING #1
File A56-7W. Top secret. Subject: AIRWOLF, a Mach-1 plus attack helicopter. Sought by governments friendly and foreign, AIRWOLF has been hidden by test pilot Stringfellow Hawke - to be returned to the government only if his brother, St. John, an MIA in Vietnam, can be found.

Michael Coldsmith Briggs III, code name: Archangel - Deputy Director of the intelligence agency that developed AIRWOLF. Believed to covertly provide logistical support to Hawke in exchange for flying AIRWOLF on missions of national interest.

Hawke is 34...reclusive, sensitive...a loner. Known to associate with his only friend and mentor, Dominic Santini.

Together, Hawke and Santini fly AIRWOLF at speeds rivaling the fastest jets. Backed by unmatched firepower, AIRWOLF is a weapon too dangerous to be left in unenlightened hands. Finding AIRWOLF is your number one priority. END OF FILE.

BRIEFING #4
This briefing is from file A56-7W. Classified TOP SECRET. Subject is: AIRWOLF. A mach one plus attack helicopter with the most advanced weapons system in the air today. It has been hidden somewhere in the western United States by its test pilot, Stringfellow Hawke. Hawke has promised to return AIRWOLF only if we can find his brother St. John, an MIA in Vietnam.

We suspect that Archangel, Deputy Director of the agency that built AIRWOLF is secretly helping Hawke in return for Hawke's flying AIRWOLF on missions of national concern.

Stringfellow Hawke is 34; a brilliant combat pilot and a recluse since his brother's disappearance. His only friend is Dominic Santini, whose air service is the cover for their government work.

With Hawke and Santini flying as a team at speeds rivaling the fastest jets, backed by unmatched firepower AIRWOLF is too dangerous to be left in unenlightened hands. Finding it is your first priority.
