Airwolf Wiki

Eric Mass is a character who makes a one-time appearance in the Season 1 episode titled "Echoes From The Past".


Eric Mass is the leader of an East German gang of intelligence agents who are out to seize Airwolf. After they have kidnapped Hawke, they use behavior control drugs to make him think he has had a chopper accident and has been in a coma for a year. The deception succeeds at first, but Mass gets impatient and wants to push Hawke to reveal Airwolf's location. He orders the team's psychologist, Anastasia Zarcov, to reduce Hawke's medication. First he brings in a fake Saint John Hawke. Then he introduces himself as Martin Abrams, Archangel's replacement in the F.I.R.M. when Michael died while trying to rescue Saint John. Hawke seems convinced that his now has what he wants and willingly reveals Airwolf's location to Mass. However the reduction in medication clears Hawke's brain enough and he soon sees through the deception and tries to escape.

The gang recapture Hawke and they force him to fly Airwolf out of the lair and load it into a C-130. The gang has all but succeeded, and soon the C-130 with Airwolf on board is flying out of the U.S. and meets an escort of Cuban MiGs. But unknown to the gang, Dominic has hidden himself inside Airwolf. He and Hawke take control of the cargo hold, lower the cargo ramp and extract Airwolf from the C-130 using a drogue chute, straight into a dogfight with the MiGs. In the ensuing melee, a MiG fires a missile at Airwolf. Hawke leads it straight into the C-130, killing Mass and the rest of his gang on board.
