Nick "Loop'n" Lopez was a helicopter cop.
Planes: Fire & Rescue
By 1978, Nick “Loop’n” Lopez was America’s favorite helicopter cop, featured on TV’s CHoPs, a show about two California Helicopter Patrol choppers. Nick, the troublemaking macho young officer, got the nickname “Loop’n” from his signature inside loop, which no other helicopter could perform. It's been mentioned later on that Nick was said to have been killed in a severe accident during filming of CHoPs' 139th episode and Blade being unable to save Nick in time resulting in the show being cancelled and Blade Ranger to quit his job as an actor and move to Piston Peak National Park.
- "CHoPs" is a parody of CHiPs, a real TV show that Nick's actor Erik Estrada starred in.
- Nick and "Blazin'" Blade Ranger have the exact same helmets as Estrada and Larry Wilcox in the show CHiPs.
- Coincidentally enough, CHiPs was cancelled after 139 episodes due to Erik Estrada being injured in a severe accident, but unlike Nick, who perished, Estrada actually eventually survived and recovered from that accident, which is why he is there to voice Nick today.
- When a storyboard artist first did the CHoPs scene, he first named the helicopter "Loopin Lance Gyro".
