\nThe series uses the converted Aérospatiale Gazelle helicopter and large portions of stock footage from the 1983 film. A ground unit named \"Rolling Thunder\" backed up the helicopter in the television series. This was a large support van with a desert camouflage off-road vehicle stored inside.
\nThe television series cast includes James Farentino, Dana Carvey, and former professional American football players Bubba Smith and Dick Butkus. The series was canceled by ABC after they felt the similar Airwolf on CBS would win the ratings battle. Also, the series aired at the same time as the CBS soap opera Dallas on Friday nights, and lost.
\nEleven episodes were made before the series was cancelled.
