When Dominic Santini is flying Airwolf alone on a mission, he lands the helicopter to rescue a downed pilot and stands to inherit millions on NBC Universalís "AIRWOLF" episode entitled "Santini's Millions." This segment was written by Michael Halperin and directed by Sutton Roley.

Because Hawke is ill with the flu, Dominic is flying Airwolf alone on an errand of mercy from Alaska to Chicago. He spots the smoldering wreck of an executive jet and lands to pick up the survivor. The wrecked plane had been piloted by Carl Barron, the founder and president of a high-tech, multinational corporation. Not only does Dominic deliver the cryogenic carrier containing a human heart that has to be in a Chicago hospital for a transplant, he also makes sure that Barron is back in Los Angeles for a very important board meeting that the head of Barron Technology Service has to attend. Barron had offered Dominic fifty thousand dollars to deliver him to L.A. without the original mission's destination stop, but Dominic had stuck to his commitment to deliver the heart to Chicago first. With Airwolf's extraordinary capabilities, Dominic is able to get Carl Barron to his board meeting in time. Barron is very impressed with Airwolf's high-tech performance, but he is even more taken with Dominic's frankness and integrity. Not too long after this incident, an explosion destroys one of BTS's labs and Barron is believed to have died in the blaze. After Barron's funeral, the will is read and Dominic has been left 40 percent of Barron's huge estate. And that-is the beginning of a long list of problems for Dominic. BTS's chief executive officer, James Graydon, becomes Dominic's greatest threat. A stunned and enraged Graydon wants control of the large corporation, and he will go to any length of obtain it.
