Saw this on CBS when it was repeated in 1983.
Spent about 10 years searching for it on VHS, then gave up.
About 5 years ago I was at Virgin Megastore and saw it out front of a DVD shelf, and I just about passed out from joy!
Bought it for $12.95, and that was the only copy they had, and it was the only time I've seen it for sale in a store, new or used.
Just loaned it to a guy who says he loved Blue Thunder and liked Airwolf.
He said it was horrible and that there was nothing special about the helicopter flying!
I can't be friends with an idiot such as that.
