* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Originally the show had a lengthy, somewhat boring title sequence showing Sandpiper's plane in flight, which got swapped out early in Season 3 for a simple title card and the actors' credits playing over the opening moments of the episode. Also, the full hangar set wasn't built until midway through Season 1, and so the show's earliest episodes resorted to greenscreening it in.
