"The power for these flying suits comes from an atomic unit that has a range of four hundred miles. It can go from zero to thirty thousand feet altitude, has the power to outrun a helicopter, and a maneuverability to give an eagle an inferiority complex."
Oscar Goldman

Notes & Trivia Edit

  • Production code number: 44414
  • This is the only sci-fi work for actor Guillermo San Juan who plays John "Paco" Little Bear.

Bloopers Edit

  • The first time that Jaime Sommers uses her bionic hearing, it is obviously stock footage taken from a previous episode. In the close-up, Jaime is seen wearing a red scar or a shirt with a red collar, which does not match her attire in this episode. This was a common tactic used on both The Bionic Woman and The Six Million Dollar Man.
  • In the long-range shots of Paco riding the horse, it is obviously an adult stunt-rider on the animal, whereas Paco is a child.

Quotes Edit

  • Jaime Sommers: Okay, Paco. Now you ride like you're going for the cavalry, alright? Uh... the Indians!

  • Oscar Goldman: Now, we're going to take a quantum leap into Buck Rogers. A degree of mobility never before attained. Individual self-contained flying suits. Look at that! Impressed?
  • Jaime Sommers: Yes!
