Farewell to the beloved face of cinema: the famous actor of the 1980s has died
The star who unfortunately no longer exists is the actor Roger E. Mosleyinterpreter of the mythical TCor Theodore Calvin, helicopter pilot who manages the tourist charter Island Hoppers in the show Magnum P.I. Here he acted together with Tom Selleck, another icon of that era. He found himself sharing the set again with his colleague when they both worked on the fifth season of the Las Vegas series.
Not everyone knows that Mosley was indeed a private helicopter pilot, but in Magnum P.I. he was not allowed to fly the aircraft, which was instead driven by another pilot. The famous MD 500D helicopter that we saw in the series was restored in 2013, at the HAI Heli-Expo in Las Vegas, complete with a ceremony.
