Sky King is a pleasant trip down memory lane -- a Great Classic TV Show
I was born in the late 50s and I remember watching this TV show when I was a kid. Sky King is a good person, always doing what is right, and always willing to help someone in need. Sky King is a cowboy law man that flies a plane instead of riding a horse! I also enjoy seeing the classic cars and trucks. If you want to take a pleasant and enjoyable trip down memory lane, this DVD is a fine way to do that. Sky King is comparable to Andy Taylor -- a fine law man.

Flying's bygone era brought back to life
There are so few movies of days of old that involve private aviation aircraft, that I had to try this one.
I remember the radio program and I thought the very early S/K Saturday serial involved a Cessna T-50. I was pleasantly surprised in this one to see the early Cessna 310 B model used and interchanged without continuity the later 310 with tip tanks. Like many serials of this bygone era, the plots were for preteens but the flying made up for this lack. Oh, and there were some great scenes with the D-18 Beech-craft. Nothing like this plane in movies from before Casablanca onward.

Some things just never go out of style!
Out of the blue of the western sky, comes Sky King. This dvd is super high quality and really brings back the memories. What I don't get is how did Sky get all the money to take off in his twin engine plane all the time at the drop of a hat? And what about his ranch...that place was so big he flew the fence line in the Songbird just to check it out. Now days, a twin engine piston plane would run you well over a couple of million bucks, so Sky, you must have been growing some kind of crops at that ranch.

In the 1950's I would watch the saturday programs with great delight.One of my favorites was Sky King.I'm very pleased with this DVD.The quality is great,it takes me back to a time when I sat glued to the TV and watched this wonderful program eating my NABISCO cookies,and following the great adventures.Especially the ads which also take me back to a simpler time.I rate this item as five star,and is a wonderful addition to my 1950's TV collection.

Sky King - Volumn 1 TV Series
I'm an airplane buff and I love to build plastic models. Recently a new model was released of Sky King's airplane. I just had to buy it. As a child. I vaguely remember watching Sky King on TV. My only recollections about it, however where, "Out of the western sky..." the fact that this guy had an airplane, and that there was some girl in the show named Penny. I had to buy this tape to see again what the show was all about and see the airplane in action. (The only problem is that the airplane in the video is a newer type than the model kit. I wonder if, as the Gecco in the TV commercial says, "We've been dupped!") Anyhow, back to the video- my how television shows have changed since 50 years ago or so!
