Baa Baa Black Sheep (renamed Black Sheep Squadron for the second season) is an American television series that aired on NBC from 23 September 1976 until 06 April 1978. It was part period military drama, part comedy.
Its original premise was based on the experiences of United States Marine Corps aviator Greg Boyington and his World War II “Black Sheep Squadron”.
An officer visits to re-qualify the squadron for combat duty, but his “by the book” testing standards are far different from the Black Sheep’s combat experience.
