As Robert Lansing proved to be difficult, with whom to work, his character was killed off in the second season premiere. He was replaced by Paul Burke, who had been a guest star in two episodes of season one, including the pilot. See more »
In many scenes through the series crew members are shown smoking on or near aircraft. Smoking was never allowed anywhere near aircraft or ammo by the Air Force since day one. It was especially prohibited in the days when aviation fuel was 100 octane gasoline which was then used by prop-driven aircraft like the B-17. See more »
I like military shows especially the ones with airplanes, so this program was just fine with me. I liked both Robert Lansing and Paul Burke but I liked Lansing better as he seemed more the kind of leader I would like to have. (I spend 4 years in the Air Force in the early 60's and Paul Burke's cousin was my roommate). I used to like the clashes between the commanders and TSGT Komansky. I wish this show would be brought back in reruns somewhere.
