The real Greg 'Pappy' Boyington appeared in the second half of the two-part episode "The Deadliest Enemy of All" in the cameo role of Gen. Harrison Kenlay. He also appeared at the end of the first season's final episode "The Fastest Gun" as an officer who pins a medal on Boyington in newsreel footage. See more »
In several of the dogfight scenes, when there is a brief in-cockpit view of the pilot's hands dramatically pushing or pulling at the control stick, none of the (clearly visible) instruments ever move to indicate a climb, dive, or turn. See more »
It was an excellent program... and miles above the competition! Baa Baa Blacksheep (Blacksheep Squadron) will always hold a special place in my heart. I not only knew the cast (Great people!), but I was acquainted with the real "Pappy" Boyington as well. He had a great time working the set of Baa Baa Blacksheep and I know it meant a lot to him... Anyone not familiar with Greg "Pappy" Boyington should read the book "Blacksheep One"... It really lets the reader into the kind of person he really was. Highly recommended!
Here's to Greg...He was one hell of a combat pilot, and a hell of a man.
He is sorely missed.
