What role did Dwight prefer Murdock or Barclay?
Dwight always states: They are both part of me. It's like children you don't prefer one to the other. Murdock is the person I always would have loved to have been on a 24 hours basis and Barclay is closer to what I was and am most of my life.
Listen to Dwight explaining the difference between the A-team and Star Trek and Murdock and Barclay.
Where can I buy a jacket like Murdock's? And was Dwight allowed to take his jacket home after the A-team stopped.
The jacket Dwight wore as Murdock was a leather A2 pilot jacket. There were two jackets made for him. The image of the tiger was handpainted on the back by an artist. Her name was Pauline Annon. The tiger design was inspired by the Flying Tiger Shipping Company's tiger head. You won't be able to purchase a replica jacket with a handpainted tiger on the back in a regular store. However it is possible to buy the same model A2 jacket without the print on the back. You can have it customized for you or just wear it without the tiger on the back. Dwight was allowed to keep both his jackets that he wore as Murdock after the series stopped. He donated one to the special forces museum at Fort Bragg in North Carolina but it was recently returned to him. Therefore both jackets are now still in his posession.
Listen to an audio in which Dwight provides some more information about his jacket.
Does Dwight have a pilot license like Murdock?
No Dwight doesn't have a pilot license, he did however had lessons in a fixed wing. When he was allowed to fly solo he stopped flying because his wife was very scared he would crash. She was worried because during that period a few people had crashed in small planes and I think you can understand that Dwight's wife didn't want that to happen to him as well. So he gave up flying and didn't get a license.
Listen here to some audio in which Dwight provides more information about his flying capabilities and WHO actually flew the choppers.
What kind of work does Dwight currently do?
Dwight is still working, mostly voice work like voices in cartoons and video games, he just loves doing voices in video games.

I'd like to hire an A-team van for a convention, special event or wedding. How do I go about that?
If you live in the UK you can actually hire an original close up van that was used in the A-team series. You can find it in Keswick at the Cars of the Stars Motor Museum. We also know a nice guy in the Netherlands who recently purchased a beautiful van, it's bought for personal use only but he might want to make an exception if there is a very valid/urgent reason you are in need for one.
