As the title suggested, this drama series was set in and above San Francisco International Airport. Lloyd Bridges starred as airport manager Jim Conrad; Barbara Werle as his efficient secretary, June; Barbara Sigel as his daughter, Suzie; and Clu Gulager as chief of airport security, Bob Hatten.
The soundtrack was filled with shrieking jets, throbbing engines, blaring emergency trucks, the voices of air traffic controllers (“Roger niner-zero-niner, you are cleared for straight-in approach”) and announcements of arrivals, departures and lost children.
