ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Actor Jan Michael Vincent, known for starring in the television series "Airwolf," has died.

A death certificate shows that Vincent died of cardiac arrest on Feb. 10, 2019, in an Asheville, North Carolina, hospital. The document shows Vincent was 73 at the time of his death, though other sources list his birth date in 1944.

The certificate signed by a doctor says he died of natural causes and no autopsy was performed.

"Airwolf" was a 1980s television series featuring crime-fighters in an advanced helicopter. Vincent played pilot Stringfellow Hawke.

He was also known for movie roles in the 1970s including "The Mechanic."
