I know the point was a military chopper that looked 100% civilian, but Airwolf really shoulda become a UH-60. better speed, MODULAR, and who'd expect a Blackhawk to pull Mach 1.6 and have THAT MUCH firepower?!

yeah, I know. I watched the entire show as a kid, and again as an adult... First season was the best.

There's gotta be a beefier civie chopper, though.

Do the blades spin clockwise, or counter? I can't tell cause the blades are vertically mirrored.

Well, can you please fix the blades, because the rotor blades are mirrored vertically.
