Return With Us Now To TV Westerns: 'SKY KING'

By Steve Crum

Kirby Grant, who portrayed the title heroic character in TV's Sky King from 1951-52, did not age that much--which is apparent in these photos taken in 1951 and 1984. 





Grant tragically died in a car accident on Oct. 30, 1985, near Cape Canaveral. He was on his way to observe the Space Shuttle Challenger liftoff.

  1. I wouldn't mind seeing a few episodes of Sky King. I seem to remember their living room adorned with leather couches and steer horns on the wall. I also recall Penny and Dad buzzing around the desert sky in their little plane, but that's about it.
