ADVERTISEMENTS
Hawke and Dominic are on a mission in Nicaragua to rescue a captive American scientist in NBC Universal’s "AIRWOLF" episode entitled "Jennie." The piece was written by Katharyn Powers and directed by Bernie Kowalski.

Hawke, Caitlin and Dominic's mission takes them to Nicaragua. As they land, Gustavo, known as 'El Gato,' awaits them. Dominic explains to Hawke how important Gustavo's role is in that country and how respected he is. The main concern is to rid Nicaragua of a mad scientist who keeps designing weapons against which that country cannot fight. The scientist turns out to be an American who had been kidnapped by the Russians. In their attempt to free the man named Keith, Gustavo gets seriously injured and stays behind, while Hawke guides Keith through the jungle until they run into Jennie, a young American teacher and her protégés, all children. On the other side of the jungle, Caitlin and Dominic are anxiously waiting for Hawke as well as for Gustavo. Escaping several ambushes and using every ruse they can possibly think of, Hawke, Jennie, Keith and the children finally meet up with Dominic and Caitlin. With Airwolf's help, they are able to cut short the escape of the man responsible for Keith's kidnapping as he was trying to save his neck and the scientist's plans.
