M.A.S.K. Technologies:

The M.A.S.K.Transport Jet is an enormous transport plane used by M.A.S.K. to fly their vehicles to other locations.

In the episode Caesar's Sword, Gloria Baker is seen piloting the Transport Jet with Hondo MacLean as her co-pilot.

In the episode Green Nightmare, Alex Sector and Dusty Hayes are at the controls, with Brad Turner serving as navigator. Alex and Dusty are again seen piloting the vehicle in the episode The Everglades Oddity, while Ace Riker, who is an ex-test pilot, looks over their shoulders.

Alex is once more seen piloting the jet in The Creeping Terror, with Jacques LaFleur as co-pilot and Matt & Scott Trakker in passenger seats while T-Bob is blow drying Scott's hair.

In the episode Plunder of Glowworm Grotto, the pilot is Bruce Sato, with Dusty once again serving as co-pilot and Gloria in the navigators position. However, Bruce boards Julio Lopez's vehicle Firefly and exits the Transport Jet while still in flight. Then Dusty saves Bruce's life using his Backlash mask from inside the Jet's hangar bay door. Thus leaving Gloria allone to pilot the vehicle.

In several episodes, such as Curse of Solomon's Gorge; The Lost Fleet and Follow the Rainbow the Transport Jet lifts off immediately after dispatching the M.A.S.K. vehicles and agents with no indication who could be flying it.

In the episode Panda Power, an unidentified pilot drives a forklift carrying a crate out of the transport, deposits the crate on the ground and leaves.

In the episode Dragonfire, Scott Trakker mistakingly calls the Transport Jet a "hovercraft".

In the episode Stone Trees, the Transport Jet is unable to land in the Canadian forest, so Condor flies out and Volcano dives off the ramp with a parachute. It is unclear if Volcano is being operated by remote control or has an unseen driver since Jacques LaFleur was already on location. It is also unclear who piloted the jet during this mission.

Similarly, in The Scarlet Empress, Raven exits the Jet while it still in the air and the transport pilot is never referenced.

In the episode 'Treasure of the Nazca Plain, Bruce Sato is manning a communication station aboard the jet with Brad Turner and Julio Lopez looking over his shoulder. Who is piloting at this time remains unknown.

In Gate of Darkness, Brad Turner seves as pilot and Buddy Hawks is the navigator. Matt requests that Brad makes a video scan of the Gate of Darkness using a multi-headed camera that deploys from the bottom of the jet. Matt then orders Brad and Dusty to do a Trans-Drop, ejecting their vehicles Condor and Firecracker from the plane while it hovers in mid-air.

Two of the same projectors used as a camera in Gate of Darkness are used to create a magnetic barrier over a ship in The Manakara Giant. Once again, the M.A.S.K. vehicles, in this case Thunderhawk and Raven exit the hovering Transport jet.

In Raiders of the Orient Express, Slingshot, Condor and Thunderhawk are seen boarding the Transport Jet. It remains unknown who opens the landing doors for them. All of them exit the Transport in flight.

Matt's father Andrew crashed a plane in the jungles of New Guinea.

He was rescued by the tribal leader Warago, who was subsequently injured in the explosion of the plane. Andrew then cares for him back to health.

As thanks, he receives a crystal, the future M.A.S.K. crystal. Andrew promised to return the crystal if it was used for a good cause.

M.A.S.K. crystal is used by the M.A.S.K. team to charge the masks, it gives the masks their energy. Since this was the good cause, it's time to return the crystal.

Alex sector managed to make a copy of the crystal. Matt then decides to return the original crystal to the tribe.

Appearing in the episode Green Nightmare, Matt Trakker used this jet to transport himself, Scott, T-Bob, and the MASK Crystal to the New Guinea. The Trakker trio was going to return the Crystal to Warago, fulfilling a promise made by Matt Trakker's father.

The jet thqt Matt would use was a civilian aircraft. It's not clear if the jet was owned by Matt, or he simply was using the plane for the trip. Matt piloted the aircraft personally.

However, VENOM somehow got wind of this plan and made plans to steal the crystal. While making a refueling stop, VENOM put their plan into effect.

Vanessa Warfield, while posing as a member of the ground crew, was able to plant an override device on the outer fuselage of the aircraft. This would take over control of the aircraft's auto pilot. VENOM seemed to be planning on forcing the plane to crash.

Once back in the air, the plane made it to the jungles of New Guinea, with Manta in following. Once the override was activated, the steering controls were unresponsive.

VENOM informed Matt via the radio that the plane would be crashing landing soon. Matt told Scott and T-Bob to head to breaker room, in order to disconnect the automatic pilot.

The plucky boy and his robot were able to pull out the correct cables necessary for Matt to regain control of the aircraft.

Matt attempted to escape from VENOM. However this luck was short lived, as a bug inside T-Bob made caused the robot to malfunction while he was still in the breaker room. T-Bob accidently disconnected multiple wires and shorted out the manual controls.

The plane took a dive, with Manta in pursuit. The plane flew through a canyon, where Manta was forced to drop out of the chase.

The plane after coming out of the canyon, hit a hill. The plane crashed into the jungle. The plane skidded down the hill through the jungle before coming to a stop at the edge of a cliff.

Our heroes survived the crash, and tried to exit the aircraft. However, a group of natives appeared and forced the trio back inside with a barrage of sleep darts.

The natives then began to push the plane over the edge of the cliff, after not being able to get inside.

The plane fell over the cliff, where it landed on it's side, near a river.

Matt, Scott and T-Bob emerge from the aircraft. Scott had the compass. T-Bob fell off the wrecked plane into the water.

Our heroes left the crash site to flee their adversaries. However the plane's emergency becon had become activated.

This allowed Alex, Brad and Dusty to launch a rescue operation.

On arriving in the MASK Transport, they located the wreck site.

Matt, Scott and T-Bob were able to return the Crystal to Warago and VENOM was routed by MASK.

The plane's fate is unknown, but the wreckage was likely abandoned.

The plane appears to be a civilian aircraft with weapons. It appeared to be able to rival Manta for speed.

The plane also seemed to be very safe, as Matt and the others survived two crashes in the plane with no injuries.

No toy of the plane was ever created.

Summary of Green Nightmare

Location of the episode*: New Guinea
Short summery*: Alex has made an exact replica of the M.A.S.K. crystal used to power up the masks. Matt tells a story about his father (Andrew) who got the crystal from a tribe leader named Warago in New Guinea. Andrew promised to return the crystal once it has been used for a good cause. Matt takes Scott and T-bobT-Bob aboard his private jet and flies to New Guinea, and while they are refueling the plane Vanessa sabotages it, allowing it to crash in the jungle. The M.A.S.K. team immediately picks up the S.O.S. signals from the plane and starts a rescue party.  

Safety tip*
Warago warns Scott Trakker not to eat poisonous strawberries.

Facts worth knowing about Green Nightmare

Particularly in this episode*:

•In the episode, we get to know the only family member of Matt Trakker, besides his son Scott, his father Andrew Trakker.
Sly Rax starts the mission as Manta's co-pilot. After Manta is disabled, Vanessa Warfield rides in Piranha's sidecar and eventually takes over as the driver.
Alex Sector and Dusty Hayes are at the controls of the M.A.S.K. Transport Jet, with Brad Turner serving as navigator.
•There is no agent call-up sequence, instead, Alex, Dusty and Brad respond to Matt's emergency transmitter beam.
Matt Trakker is in civilian clothing for the entire mission and uses none of his M.A.S.K. technology.
•To differentiate between the two tribes, the natives that end up working for V.E.N.O.M. all wear tan colored skirts made out of fur while the memebers of Warago's tribe wear green grass skirts.  

Small mistakes in the episode*:

•The customs officer has brown hair when he greets the Trakkers, it changes to blond when he goes to meet Rax in the backroom, and back to brown after Rax pushes him into the wall.
•When the natives aligned with V.E.N.O.M. are scared off and run away, there are two groups of them running in different directions, but the background remains the same making for an awkward jump-cut.
•When Switchblade switches to jet-mode, the sound effects usually connected to T-Bob are heard.  

Useful information*:

•In the episode we learn more about the technology of the masks of the M.A.S.K. team , and how they are charged. The masks are charged via a crystal that Matt's father Andrew received from a tribe on New Guinea.
