Subject: Seeking rocket belt (jetpack) episodes of Ark II

Mac Montandon, who is writing a book on the Bell Rocket Belt and its descendants, and has asked for assistance with his research.

Can you help? Which episodes of Ark II portrayed rocket belt flights?

Since the series was filmed in the mid-Seventies, long after Bell Aerospace shut down their rocket belt demonstration team, I presume (but have not confirmed) that these flights were made with the copy of the rocket belt built by Nelson Tyler. Probably Bill Suitor was the pilot.

Do Bill Suitor or Nelson Tyler appear in the credits of any episodes?

Is there any information on the "DVD extras" of this series about the rocket belt?
