Sky King Theme Song "Sky King" by Paul Sawtell, and Bert Shefter
"Out of the clear blue of the western sky comes Sky King!"
Sky King was a former military pilot who used his airplane to patrol the skies of his Flying Crown ranch and neighboring areas. He was frequently called upon to rescue someone in distress. Sky King was mainly a kid's show from the early Fifties, but Sky King was shown in reruns for many years which is why you recall this as appearing later. One thing is certain. We all watched Sky King and we all wanted to be pilots. Penny was Sky King's niece, but yes, in earlier episodes he also had a nephew, Clipper. In the earlier episodes, Sky King's plane was a Cessna T-50 twin-engine "Bamboo Bomber." The more familiar plane was Songbird, a Cessna 310B
Kirby Grant died in 1985 in an automobile accident while on his way to watch a launch of the Space Shuttle Challenger at Cape Canaveral. He was to be honored by the shuttle astronauts for his achievements in encouraging aviation and space flight.
