The first entry of Tsuburaya Productions' "Ultra Series," in which an aviator/amateur sci-fi writer, his plucky assistant, and a young female newspaper reporter investigate strange phenomena, usually involving aliens and giant monsters.
The kanji on the sides of these helicopters reads as 星川航空, which translates to Hoshikawa Airlines and seems to be made up for the show. In reality, they belonged to Mitsuya Air Service (their English name seen on the nose of JA9003 and their three-pointed logo seen on both airframes), the precursor to Toho Air Service.
