The Series

Take Flight is a Power Rangers fan series, originally 40 episodes adapted from the Japanese series Choujin Sentai Jetman (1991-92).  A second season was planned, adapted from Choujuu Sentai Liveman (1988-89).  Screenshots indicate where Japanese footage would be placed in each episode.

Commentary

Writer's commentary is optionally available for each episode.  Spoilers abound; if you haven't finished the series and remotely enjoy mystery or suspense, you probably shouldn't read the commentary yet.  (Season 1 commentary does not heavily spoil season 2.)
