What TV show opened with a hangliding sequence in the opening credits?

Anyone? My buddy seems to think it was a detective-type of show like Simon and Simon, Hardcastle and McCormick, etc... I am not sure on that part... but I do remember there being a show that had hangliding in the opening credits... anyone?

Simon and Simon sounds right.

Edit: nope, hot air balloon instead.

Interesting little known fact there, Mr. Pitt Gorilla.

Here's an even littler known fact: Ants sometimes get a virus in their brains that cause them to leave their colony and climb up all by themselves to the very, very top of a blade of grass for no reason at all except that their brains have a virus in them. So, instead of being able to hide from predators in the dirt where they're safe except from anteaters, they get eaten by birds and other ant-eating wildlife and stuff while they're up on the top of the blade of grass. All because they got a virus in their brain, dude.

Interesting little known fact there, Mr. Pitt Gorilla.

Here's an even littler known fact: Ants sometimes get a virus in their brains that cause them to leave their colony and climb up all by themselves to the very, very top of a blade of grass for no reason at all except that their brains have a virus in them. So, instead of being able to hide from predators in the dirt where they're safe except from anteaters, they get eaten by birds and other ant-eating wildlife and stuff while they're up on the top of the blade of grass. All because they got a virus in their brain, dude.

FAX

I'm sure google has already been bombarded by 'rainbow hang glider' so I'm not even going to try but Mr. Fax, I see your Ant Suicide Virus and see you the "water bear" aka Tardigrade.

Some interesting facts about the little guy:

Tardigrades have been known to withstand the following extremes while in this state:


Temperature (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temperature) — tardigrades can survive being heated for a few minutes to 151 C, or being chilled for days at –200 C, or for a few minutes at –272 C. (absolute zero (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absolute_zero) is −273.15 C).<sup id="cite_ref-10" class="reference">[11] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardigrada#cite_note-10)</sup>
Pressure (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pressure) — they can withstand the extremely low pressure of a vacuum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum) and also very high pressures, more than 1200 times atmospheric pressure (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmospheric_pressure). It has recently been demonstrated that tardigrades can survive the vacuum of open space and solar radiation combined for at least 10 days.<sup id="cite_ref-11" class="reference">[12] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardigrada#cite_note-11)</sup> Recent research has notched up another feat of endurance: they can withstand 6,000 atmospheres, which is nearly six times the pressure of water in the deepest ocean trench. <sup id="cite_ref-12" class="reference">[13] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardigrada#cite_note-12)</sup>
Dehydration (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehydration) — tardigrades have been shown to survive nearly one decade in a dry state.<sup id="cite_ref-13" class="reference">[14] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardigrada#cite_note-13)</sup> Another researcher reported that a tardigrade survived over a period of 120 years in a dehydrated state, but soon died after 2 to 3 minutes of more customary exposure.<sup id="cite_ref-14" class="reference">[15] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardigrada#cite_note-14)</sup> Subsequent research has cast doubt on its accuracy since only small movements in the water bear's leg were detected.<sup id="cite_ref-15" class="reference">[16] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tardigrada#cite_note-15)</sup>
Radiation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiation) — as shown by Raul M. May from the University of Paris, tardigrades can withstand 5,700 grays (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gray_%28unit%29) or 570,000 rads (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rad_%28unit%29) of x-ray radiation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-rays). (Ten to twenty grays or 1,000–2,000 rads could be fatal to a human). The only explanation thus far for this ability is that their lowered hydration state provides fewer reactants for the ionizing radiation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ionizing_radiation).

Quiet an amazing creature. Literally almost indisructable except for when his environment is quickly changed. I've always admired the little guy.
