Flying has always been in Skystriker's blood. His father was a flight operations officer in the Air Force in Maryland. It should then come as no surprise that he would choose a career in the Air Force as a fighter pilot. Once he earned his "wings", Skystriker wasted no time in showing what he could do in the air. He could pull stunts like a double-looped nose dive in front of two enemy fighters and come up with aerial tactics that everyone swears they have never heard of. He makes pilots like Ace and Slip-Stream green with envy.

Skystriker served as a reserve member of G.I. Joe after its reinstatement. He was called back to the team during World War III, flying missions based from the U.S.S. Flagg.

  • The only new character in the Tiger Force series.
  • Russo's filecard says he flew X-30s during several runs on Cobra Island, suggesting he was just a character we hadn't met before.
  • Skystriker's action figure was primarily made with the same mold used to make the original Wild Weasel, while the head and helmet accessory was the same one used for Thunder.
