Fantasy setting aside, and the impossibility for anything to be accurate in regards to a fake history, I'm curious as to just how anachronistic the song is in regards to real world medieval bard music.
My memory of Blue Thunder as an elementary schooler is an hour of boring adults doing boring things followed by 30 minutes that made me happier than a puppy. That's because our hero pilot/cop takes to the sky in his armored murder-copter to do battle with police cars, other choppers, and a couple F-16s. For reasons.
Airwolf, by contrast, was a totally different thing. It was a TV show that ran on CBS from 1984 to 1986 before squeezing out one more season on the USA network. It also involved an experimental military chopper flown by a sullen ex-Army pilot with the shockingly preposterous name "Stringfellow Hawke." [My editor says that] if you watch all of Airwolf in order you can actually see star Jan-Michael Vincent get progressively drunker and more checked-out as the show goes on.
