Detailed Synopsis

A rocket lifts off and D.G. Bogard tells a group of men including Agent Dickens, they soon will be able to do a satellite scan of the Southwest region. Agent Dickens then tells Bogard that a strike force has already been mobilized. Bogard tells the men he will either destroy Airwolf or fly it back to Washington. Stringfellow Hawke and Dominic are in Dominic's helicopter filming war games for a training film. Michael Coldsmith Briggs III, Archangel, radios Hawke and Hawke tells Col. Ellinson one of the camera mounts might be missing a piece and he is going to land. Hawke and Dominic land and meet up with Archangel and Marella. Archangel tells Hawke that Bogard is coming after him and Airwolf. Hawke mentions how others have tried to get Airwolf, but Marella tells him Bogard is both organized and well financed. Archangel then hands Hawke a file with gaps where the satellite wont scan and Marella tells them Archangel is going to be busy answering questions from a Senate Subcommittee.

Sgt. Nash tells Dominic they can't afford to fall behind in their shooting schedule due to a planned B-52 bombing run. Dominic tells Nash he needs an hour to repair his equipment and he and Hawke hide Airwolf. They receive a mayday and Dominic flies to its location. He lands and finds Antonia Donatelli. Dominic chastises Antonia for flying her old plane in a storm, and Antonia begs him for a ride. He finally agrees to let her ride with him and she tells him her full name and Dominic is excited when he finds out she is ethnically Italian. He takes her to Hawke's cabin and Antonia is greeted by Tet. Dominic then takes off again and picks up Hawke at an airplane boneyard. Antonia pulls out a recorder and starts recording what has happened to her. Later, Hawke makes Italian food for dinner and he becomes skeptical of Antonia over dinner as she tells her story. Hawke tells Antonia he is going to get firewood and asks Dominic for help. When they go outside, Hawke tells Dominic he doesn't trust Antonia. The next day they drop Antonia off at her plane and Antonia flies away. Col. Ellinson tells Hawke and Dominic where the B-52 bomb run will be. Hawke walks up to Sgt. Nash when he notices him messing with Dominic's helicopter. Hawke notices a helicopter chasing them and finds a tracking device in Dominic's helicopter and blames Antonia. They follow a truck and Hawke drops the tracking device in the bed of the truck.

They fly to where Antonia is staying and Dominic accuses her of lying to him. She tells him she faked the mayday call so she could meet him and try and get a job. She tells them she was fired at her other job for rejecting the chief pilot's advances. Hawke and Dominic then fly away after Dominic tells her to send a resume next time. At his cabin, Hawke hears a noise and Bogard enters his cabin. He tells Hawke he can either give him Airwolf or he will take it. Hawke tells him to leave and Bogard tells him he has a search warrant. Bogard then leaves after telling Hawke if need be he will blow him and Airwolf out of the sky. Dominic goes to where Antonia is staying and offers her a job and they leave in his helicopter. Hawke, who was hiding, then flies away in Antonia's plane. The Pilot tells Bogard there are two blips on the radar in the area. Ellinson tells Dominic there is a slight delay in the bombing run and tells him he will radio him when he is ready. Hawke gets into Airwolf, but is surrounded by Bogard and a group of helicopters. Hawke flies away with Bogard following him. Hawke flies into the path of the bombing run. Dominic tells Ellinson to stop the bombing run, and as Ellinson is about to cancel the bombing, Nash takes the radio mike away from him and relieves him of his duty. Hawke flies Airwolf as the B-52's drop their bombs and maneuvers around the explosions. Ellinson orders Bogard and Nash arrested. Back at Hawke's cabin, Archangel tries to hire Antonia, but Dominic tells him Antonia is coming to work for him as his top stunt pilot.
