(1) Jim Amash, in the Quality Companion (TwoMorrows, 2011), page 13, states that this story was Cuidera's last PENCILED issue. Thus the ink credit for this story is listed with a ?.
(2) Letterer credit per Cuidera and added by Craig Delich 2012-1-15.
(3) Seven Blackhawk planes are depicted on page 6 panel 7, suggesting an additional Blackhawk joined the airfight. The 1 unidentified member is likely Zeg (or possibly Boris).
(4) Chuck is named in this story (however he is erroneously shown with black hair). He was introduced in a single panel (page 2 panel 4) in the previous issue.
