Up up and away

"It's a Bird, It's a Plane" features a military jet pack lost at sea, the kind already seen on LOST IN SPACE, most famously in the 1965 James Bond feature "Thunderball," offering another chance of rescue for the castaways. At first a dummy with a note is set up to fly to Hawaii, only for Gilligan to use up nearly all the fuel on an unintended ride through the jungle. The knowledge that a Navy search for the jet pack ensures that Gilligan's wiry frame will be headed straight up in the air, high enough to be spotted. Of course, he hears about a UFO and flies right into a cloud, creating a monsoon that calls off the search. It's amusing to see 'Super Gilligan' identified as a UFO but it's not one of the funnier episodes.
