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 likes to think he makes pilots like Ace and Slip-Stream green with envy.

Alexander Russo's father was a flight operations officer in the Air Force in Maryland. When Alexander was old enough, he too chose 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. In 1988, he was chosen as part of G.I. Joe's dedicated elite Air Force support.

While written as "Lt. Colonel" in orders and signature blocks, as a courtesy, lieutenant colonels are addressed simply as "colonel" verbally and in the salutation of correspondence. The U.S. Army uses the three letter abbreviation "LTC." The U.S. Air Force and United States Marine Corps use the abbreviations "Lt Col" and "LtCol" (note the space) respectively.
