A new full-size replica of the AIRWOLF helicopter was created but Steven J. Full for display in a short-lived helicopter headquarters museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee that opened in August, 2006, using a non-flying bell 222 with molds taken directly from the originals used in the show. Due to lack of money the chain guns were never finished.

The museum was unsuccessful, and offered the replica through Ebay. Then it was sold and made a new home at the Tennessee Museum of Avation in Sevierville, Tennessee. 

Latest news is that it was sold to a private owner who sent it to Westcoast custom for a paint touch up on a couple of parts that unfortunately had some issues due to a rushed job by a mechanic. The mechanic didn't use hardener or sealers that made the nose and the pilot door bubble and look different from the rest.. 

It's gonna be excited to see what Westcoast will do to the replica, either it's just to finish the parts or to paint the whole helicopter..

Check back for updates.
