Wich one do you think would win.

I'm going to go for O'l Blue.
Made in the USA



Made in France. Just look at the guns that have to be hidden so that the natives do not get offended.

No way, airwolf would smoke BT. It can fly upside down with Earnest Borgnine in it for crying out loud. Plus it could break the sound barrier. Case closed!

Blue Thunder would kick it's ass, as long as Roy is in the cockpit.

"That's impossible!"

the red x will win

Airwolf would win because it had better theme music.

<----------------------



Airwolf is better armed, faster and more maneuverable. No contest unless the pilot flying it was a total amature.

Not to mention better looking And Airwolf was based on an American ship (Bell) where Blue Thunder is a frog design (Aerospatiale)

I voted Blue Thunder.

But AirWolf might be the better aircraft.

But only because it's a few years newer. But only a few.

Blue Thunder was operated by The Man. Airwolf was stolen from The Man. When I was a kid I always thought Airwolf was badass and Blue Thunder was a POS.

Well, then Crockett and Tubbs would show up and blow them away!

You've been misinformed. Court records clearly indicate he only drank when he beat his wife.

Airwolf crashed.
Blue Thunder didn't.

Blue Thunder wins by default.

Airwolf
The Airwolf helicopter was actually a modified Bell 222 painted black (serial number 47085, registration number N3176S). After the show was cancelled the modifications were removed. The aircraft was repainted and eventually sold to the German firm, Hubschrauber-Sonder-Dienst and given the German registration number D-HHSD. Airwolf, as a plain Bell 222 air ambulance, crashed in a thunderstorm on 9 June 1991, killing her three passengers.

Blue Thunder
The star helicopter of the movie was a modified French Aerospatiale SA.341G Gazelle helicopter. This model was developed as a light observation helicopter for European defence forces. It features an advanced three-blade main rotor system, a shrouded tail rotor system built into the tail itself, and high visibility cabin windows.

The Gazelle cruises at 146 knots and is considered quite fast considering it is only powered by a single gas turbine engine and seats as many as a Jetranger. Another unique feature of this helicopter is that the shrouded tail rotor is made up of a dozen or so small fan blades that spin at very high RPM. This results in a harmonic effect with the main rotor that produces a loud, whiney sound, commonly known as "shrieking".

The Blue Thunder version had modifications that included an entirely new retrofitted cabin canopy. This change removed the soft, round cabin and replaced it with an agressive, insect-like attack helicopter canopy. This was perhaps one of the most important styling points to make the machine appear menacing. The designers also added the mockup moving minigun that fired water and fitted dummy accessories to the sides of the aircraft.

There were also a series of minor cosmetic changes here and there. Although the result looked fantastic and very believable, and even regaining FAA airworthyness, these all added weight and the resulting impact on the aircraft's performance led to clever camera filming techniques being employed to make it look fast.


"Just thought you might like to see this shot I took of apparently all that remains of the two Blue Thunder helicopters--it's residing in pretty poor shape on the backlot tour of MGM studios in Florida. It really is in poor state but the magic is still there. The annoying thing is you make the tour on a train and don't stop--so you have to take pictures on the move."

Hi, this post is all about AIRWOLF, REAL AIRWOLF. This post is awesome. My name is 2IDdoc and I can't stop thinking about Airwolf. This helicopter is cool; and by cool, I mean totally sweet.



Facts:



1. Airwolf pilots are mammals.

2. Airwolf fights ALL the time.

3. The purpose of Airwolf is to flip out and kill people

If you don't believe that Airwolf has REAL Ultimate Power you better get a life right now or it will chop your head off!!! It's an easy choice, if you ask me.
Airwolf is sooooooooooo sweet that I want to crap my pants. I can't believe it sometimes, but I feel it inside my heart. This helicopter is totally awesome and that's a fact. Airwolf is fast, smooth, cool, strong, powerful, and sweet. I can't wait to start pilot lessons next year. I love Airwolf with all of my body (including my pee pee)

Blue Thunder, It had a naked chic at the begining of the movie. Gotta love that.
