The American actor last worked in film, White Boy, in 2002.
Fans paid tribute to the late actor on Twitter with one person writing: "Jan-Michael Vincent legend sadly gone".
In addition to Airwolf, Vincent appeared in a number of other TV series, such as Police Story, Gunsmoke, Bonanza, and Nash Bridges.
Vincent, who had documented problems with alcoholism and drug abuse, suffered a broken neck in a high-profile 2006 auto crash while chasing a girlfriend he was fighting with.
Break-in at Brendan Rodgers Scottish house
The Celtic defender has a long way to go on his contract and unlike Brendan, young Kieran is Celtic through and through. The East Dunbartonshire property of Rodgers was broken into, but no-one was injured during the incident.
However, it was Airwolf that truly made Vincent a star. He was ordered to pay $350,000 in 2000 after physically assaulting an ex-girlfriend and causing her to miscarry their child.
That year, he was also sentenced to 60 days in jail for violating his probation for alcohol-related convictions.
After Airwolf, he was only able to secure small parts through the 1990s, including in Nash Bridges and Vincent Gallo's Buffalo '66.
