"Bigfoot V" "Rollback"


Steve and Rudy are forced to land a small plane during severe weather, and in the process encounter a trio of bank robbers. In the meanwhile, a group of kids on a field trip are trapped on a tram on a nearby mountain. Steve must thwart the bank robbers and rescue the kids before the tornado hits




  • Despite the common misconception that tornadoes don't occur near mountain ranges, they in fact can (but they're exceedingly rare).
  • Oscar Goldman does not make an appearance in this episode.
  • Lee Majors performed the tram car stunt himself when a previous head injury prevented his usual stunt double, Vince Deadrick, Sr., from attempting the feat. Another stunt performer had been asked to do it, but he refused.


The exterior shots of the airplane show a cloudy sky, but interior shots are set against a blue sky. The same blue sky is seen during the bank robbery, despite the winds. Exterior shots remain inconsistent throughout the episode.

No one questions how Steve is able to single-handedly pull the tram along the cables and into the bay
