Storyline

"From out of the clear blue of the western sky comes Sky King" was the familiar opening to television's premier aviation program. Operating from his Flying Crown Ranch in Arizona, Sky King, his niece Penny and their Cessna 310 airplane "Songbird" were constantly involved in one adventure after another. Viewed by many children in the 1950's, this program was responsible for inspiring many later aviation careers. Written by Wayne Coleman <waynecoleman@swbell.net>

two planes
20 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

there were two main planes in Sky King, the first was the Cessna twin 50, the second, known as the Songbird was a Cessna B310, and is probably the better known plane. I loved this series, though i saw it in Saturday afternoon reruns. Why can't Tvland play it at night for all us old f*rts to enjoy again? I would watch it. By the way, in one episode, I don't know which one, Sky King did fly jets. According to the script, a Air Force General says, The real sky king can fly anything with wings. (seems there was an imposter and thats how he tripped him up, saying that he heard he didn't re-qualify on the jets) Best show of its type at the time. The airplane idea was a nice leap into the now from the old westerns.
