23. Flight To Harbin
Charles Wallace King - Alias Ernest C. Putnam: Crime Aboard Aircraft - Piracy - Attempted Murder.
Original broadcast date: 27 February 1966
Inspector Lewis Erskine must save the lives of airline passengers aboard a flying prison of terror. A lone nut is hijacking a jet to Harbin, Manchuria (northeastern China).
Rather droll episode. However, we see Mr. Erskine with another lady when he is contacted in San Francisco. Hmmm . he apparently is not with Joanna Laurens anymore.
- Arthur Hill makes his first appearance on the series here. He would guest star in other episodes.
- Ron Doyle was credited as Ronald Doyle.
- The good inspector hops a ride on a USAF F-104 (tail number 736) to arrive in Alaska before the hijacked plane. No interesting cars.
Nancy Kovack makes her first appearance on the series. Director Christian Nyby had directed several episodes of Perry Mason, as well as other shows.
