Originally aired September 6, 1969 - September 4, 1971 on ABC-TV
A Pantomime Pictures/Ken Snyder Production

Skyhawks, Inc. was a family-run daredevil air transport rescue service based at San Marcos Field. Widower Mike “Cap” Wilson, the leader of the team, learned how to fly as an Air Force Colonel in World War II. Pappy Wilson, his father, had been a World War I flying ace. Mike had 17-year old twins, Steve and Carolyn, and Pappy had two foster kids, 14-year old Baron "Red" Hughes and his 9-year old sister Cynthia. Mike’s girlfriend was Maggie McNally, and Joe Conway was the Skyhawks' chief mechanic. In an emergency, the team would save troubled charter planes, rescue helicopter pilots, transport air freight, or run secret government missions. San Marcos Field also was the home base of the Skyhawks' unscrupulous competitor, Buck Devlin and his pilots.
