Bio

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. This was the only living apperance of Nick as he is otherwise only mentioned. When Dusty asks Maru in guilt of causing Blade to be grounded, Maru reveals that Nick crashed and was destroyed during filming of CHoPs' 139th episode when a stunt gone wrong and Blade being unable to save Nick in time. The show was cancelled, and Blade quits his job as an actor, which is why he is leading the Piston Peak Air Attack team today.

Trivia

  • "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 was destroyed, Estrada 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".[1]
