Hawke and Dom must stop a suspected traitor from turning an advanced military fighter over to the Russians in exchange for his son who was born in Vietnam. Things get complicated, though, when Hawke realizes that he was also involved with the boy's mother during roughly the same era as the child's birth.

Did You Know?
The aircraft the Air Force pilots are flying is a Boeing Skyfox, a plane intended to replace the Lockheed T-33. The concept was actually a kit upgrade to an existing T-33 airframe. While several parties, including USAF, were interested, the program never really got off the ground. Only one airframe conversion was ever completed, registration number N221SF. It first flew on August 23, 1983. In the establishing shot when the plane is first seen, there is actually a T-33, the plane the Skyfox was intended to replace, parked next to it. See more
When Hawke is piloting Airwolf out of the Lair at 35:33 on the DVD/Blu-Ray, he is shown wearing a flight suit with the name GORDON on it. Gordon was the co-pilot in the pilot episode, making this re-used footage. While it might have been possible that Hawke hadn't had time to get a new suit since he stole Airwolf, the image is flipped horizontally. At 44:51 the name GORDON is seen again, but no longer reversed. See more
Now all we have to do is attack Russia, steal the kid, and try not to get caught by our own government.
In the meantime I still don't know what all these knobs and buttons are for.
I wouldn't sweat it, Dom. You touch that 'eject' button, you'll be the first to know.
