Slip Stream was a video-game whiz and computer hacker until he discovered flying. He joined the Jr. Civil Air Patrol while a teenager and eventually got his Air Force commission through the R.O.T.C. He finished at the top of his class in flight school where his knowledge of computers and his lightning reflexes gave him a keen competitive edge. He speaks Armenian, Greek and French, plays a mean game of table tennis, and is known in the "Pit" as an unrepentent joker and mimic.
"An aircraft with computer assisted control surfaces can do things that are impossible for a conventional plane. (Flat turns without banking, flight axis shift and horizontal rolls.) The controls are incredibly sensitive, the slightest tremor being translated into drastic movement. It takes a light touch to fly a ship like that and Slip Stream has the touch, the eye, the brain and the guts to make that aircraft do exactly what he wants."
Two variations of Slip-Stream exist. One is the "no teeth" version that has lighter brown plastic, sharper paint detail, and a "MADE IN HONG KONG" date stamp.The other is the version "with teeth" that is slightly darker and has the date stamp "MADE IN CHINA."
Slip-Stream's body mold is entirely original and not made up from previous molds.
Slip-Stream's chest, arms, waist, and legs were re-used in 1990 to create the Sky Patrol Altitude.
Versions of Slip-Stream
In 2008, Slip-Stream was renamed Lt. Slip Stream. So while there are multiple names, they are all based on the character "Slip-Stream."
