During the events of Airwolf: Season 2 Episode 22 Short Walk to Freedom played by John Aniston

Chema Comargo drives Caitlin O'Shannessy, Kay Freestone, Ozzie Hathaway, Cookie, Ernie and Jonathan 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. Stringfellow 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. Colonel Alazar accuses Hawke of being a spy and accuses the students of stealing his countries' heritage. Colonel Alazar then tells Hawke he will be tried in a people's court. Colonel Alazar chastises Ozzie for using students to help smuggle artifacts and tells him he is going to kill him, but he doesn't deserve a man's death. As Ozzie is being taken away, he grabs a rifle from a rebel and starts shooting rebels until he is shot dead. Hawke manages to escape in a jeep during the confusion and Colonel Alazar calls Air Minister Pizarro in Cuba and requests air support and four MiGs are launched. Colonel Alazar chases after Hawke in a vehicle and comes across the body of Sergeant and tells the MiG pilots to fire at anything that moves. He arrives and starts firing at Airwolf and Marella's plane. Hawke then blows up Colonel Alazar and the rebels in the truck they were in.
