Dear Ernie Cline: How Airwolf is an Airwolf Replica?
I dunno, but I think $60,000–the winning bed for this–is pretty freaking Airwolf.
The full size Airwolf replica was made with an existing Bell 222A airframe. The side panels, nose panel and refueling port were all made from the specs from the original Airwolf and are exact. The ADF pod and chainguns are not included in this auction, but will be available if anyone is interested. The interior is not finished, but the pilot and co-pilot seats have been reupholstered and the instrument panel has been mocked up. Airwolf inspired a whole generation to learn to fly helicopters and this replica is beautiful.
“Chainguns sold separately.” I think the most depressing part is that the replica had to be picked up–I would love to know the shipping costs on an Airwolf. I don’t know why–I still have lots of perfectly good and useless information stuck in my head from high school and college, but still. I am compelled to know.
Update: Auction is long since gone.
