Trivia

The plane that Steve and Rudy are flying is the same small yellow/green Ryan Navion plane that was used in a previous SMDM episode "Pilot Error". See more »

Goofs

Steve may be super-strong physically, but he only weights about 200 pounds, so he could not hold the plane down in the wind unless his feet were anchored to the ground. Except for simply squeezing/crushing something in his right hand, his bionic strength is only usable when he has something to brace himself against so that he can apply force on the object to be moved.

Quotes

Col. Steve Austin: [in response to Rhonda's slightly sorrowful question about whether she could see Steve again in the future, and after having heard Rhonda say that she would add sawdust to the local policeman's burgers if he tried to pull her over] Well, when I get a chance, maybe I'll stop back over here to visit you and have one of your juicy burgers - - cooked rare, and **no sawdust**.

Sort Of Reads Like A 1970s TV Disaster Movie
17 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

Two story lines of crime and disaster both connected to a "killer wind".

What I love about season five so far is that the makers of The Six Million Dollar Man were obviously trying to put a new stamp on the series and make things different from previous seasons: Killer Wind is no exception to the rule.

Wind all over the place, in all sorts of locations, a TV episode filmed in six days cannot normally get a wind machine to go everywhere is such a short space of time. So I suspect it was actually a conveniently windy week when this adventure was filmed. Prove me wrong!

Looks like this hour is trying to cash in on the disaster movie craze of the 1970s as this genre of cinema had multiple plots going on at the same time. The later series of the day - The Incredible Hulk - also had a couple of disaster hours, even going as far as pinching footage from Earthquake (1974) and Airport 75 (1975)!

With the exception of a really stupid fight scene that looks like something out of the colour years of Adventures Of Superman (1952), Killer Wind is another pleasing adventure in a bionic season that is full of surprises.
