| Basically... skydivers.
That's the whole point of the show. Every week something happens, these two skydivers take flight and take out the bad guys.

I remember first seeing this show and the 4 year old me and my friends that saw it on syndication would practice jumping off the stairs to "practice" our skydiving for when we were older. 1 stair was for babies. 2 stars were where "big kids" started. 3 stairs were for the really advanced ones. And 4 stairs was the equivalent of a double black diamond run in other words it was too high and we never got enough lift to make it so that was the eventual goal to determine if we graduated. We never did.

But yeah, it's an interesting little bit of forgotten 60's nostalgia that introduced the country to the new found sport of skydiving. It's kinda cheesy in a 60's way. There's elements of adventure, action, drama, comedy and whatever else they felt they could use to fit in some skydiving scenes. Nobody ever said the show was very deep.
