On a secret mission behind the Iron Curtain, Hawke loses control of the onboard computer, which was programmed on a timer by Airwolf's creator, Dr. Moffet...now Airwolf is set to destroy any aircraft in its range on NBC Universalís "AIRWOLF" episode entitled "Moffett's Ghost." The episode was directed by Don Baer from a teleplay by T.S. Cook.

The ghost of the late Charles Moffet, the brilliant but deranged developer of the aerial superweapon Airwolf, manifests itself to haunt Stringfellow Hawke and Dominic Santini in perilous style. During a series of flights, Airwolf's computerized guidance system develops a mind of its own, refusing to respond to manual or electronic maneuvers executed by Hawke and Santini. The uncontrollable behavior of the system extends even to causing bizarre attacks by Airwolf on friendly aircraft and other airborne objects. With a crucial secret mission upcoming, Hawke and Santini summon Dr. Karen Hanson, an electronics expert, to troubleshoot the guidance system. Dr. Hanson discovers that a computerized version of Moffett's vengeful ghost is the source of the problem, but the solution seems beyond her mind and experience.
