Spud Barrett (Tim Conway) was the clumsy, oafish, but well-meaning chief pilot for a small airline called Triple-A (“Anywhere, Anytime Airline”). He was the chief pilot primarily because he was also the only pilot.
Owner of the airline, and Spud’s boss, was cranky Herb Kenworth (Joe Flynn), who, despite being in the air charter business, was terrified of flying.
The airfield they operated from was owned by Mrs Crawford (Anne Seymour) who also ran her own more prosperous charter service. Her weaselly son was Ronnie (Johnnie Collins III).
The Tim Conway Show aired as a CBS mid-season replacement on Friday nights at 8 pm (with Conway and Flynn basically playing their same characters from McHale’s Navy) as the lead-in to the popular Hogan’s Heroes and opposite The Brady Bunch on ABC and The High Chaparral on NBC.
