Gallery

  • This gallery is incomplete. The following have not been identified. It is not clear where they turn up in the episode:
    • John Medici as "Gibson". There's a pilot flying Jake. That could be him but needs to be confirmed.
    • Aline Towne as "Town Lady". According to her biography at IMDB, she would be in her 70s in this episode.
  • Allen Joseph as "Mechanic #2". According to IMDB, he should be in his 60s. He is also described as diminuitive. A tentative identification has been made based on the heights of the mechanics. The mechanic fixing the missiles on the UH-1J only reaches O'Donnel's shoulder.
  • Gary Frommer as "Mechanic #1". If Joseph is the one fixing the missiles, that leaves the one at Van Nuys who advises Kevin to see Santini.... so he must be Gary Frommer.
