Background

Chema Comargo is an artifact smuggler and guide in Central America. He used to drive a taxi in the United States.


During the events of Airwolf: Season 2 Episode 22 Short Walk to Freedom played by Jorge Cervera, Jr.

The plane with Stringfellow Hawke, Caitlin O'Shannessy, Kay Freestone, Ozzie Hathaway, Cookie, Ernie and Jonathan lands and Comargo greets Ozzie. Caitlin sees Miguel forging parts for the bus Ozzie and his students are going to take to the archaeological site. Miguel mentions there have been lots of guerrilla activity lately including those led by Colonel Arturo Alazar, who hates Americans. Comargo pulls Ozzie aside and tells him about the looted artifacts he has for Ozzie to smuggle back to the United States. Hawke flies the plane back while Caitlin stays with Ozzie and the students. Comargo decides to take a shortcut and crashes the bus into an embankment. Sergeant and a group of rebels walk up to the bus and orders Comargo to follow behind him in his jeep. They drive into the base of Colonel Alazar and Colonel Alazar recognizes Comargo. Ozzie tells Colonel Alazar that he has the ability to smuggle artifacts out of the country. Colonel Alazar becomes offended by Ozzie's offer and tells him bribery will be added to his crimes. Caitlin, Ozzie and the students are then placed in a cell. Colonel Alazar and Comargo reminisce of when they used to drive taxis in the United States and Colonel Alazar tells Comargo he plans on taking over the entire country. Sergeant tells Colonel Alazar he has a call from Cuba. Hawke and Dominic in Airwolf fire on the ammo cache, causing it to explode and attack other parts of the guerrilla base before shooting a hole in the cell wall and landing. Hawke runs to the cell after riding inside a net basket hanging from the bottom of Airwolf, but Airwolf is hit with bazooka fire. During the escape, Ozzie falls out of the basket and Hawke jumps down to alleviate the weight hanging from Airwolf. A few days later in the morning, the students set a trap and when Comargo arrives in a jeep with a rebel, they ambush Comargo and use the jeep to pull Airwolf while Comargo and the rebel are tied up.
