This article is about a/an episode in Choujin Sentai Jetman.

Flap Your Wings! Aviators! (はばたけ!鳥人よ Habatake! Chōjin yo) is the fifty-first and final episode of Choujin Sentai Jetman. It is the controversial conclusion to Jetman's four-episode endgame.


As Radiguet ascends to an unstoppable final form, the Jetman must figure how to finally defeat him in order to end the interdimensional threat forever!


Jet Icarus is the first robot called in to tackle Radiguet. They're fighting a losing battle when Jet Garuda arrives, piloted by Aya. The two robots form together and the odds improve, but they are still losing. They call in Tetraboy. The little blue robot punches Radiguet in the back, and as his giant monster-self turns, the Jetmen see a raw, gaping wound. It is the injury from when Maria stabbed him. The robots separate. Ryu stays in Jet Garuda. Radiguet tears one arm off of Jet Icarus. Jet Garuda catches him by both arms and Ryu orders his companions to stab Radiege through his wound. They protest, knowing this action will destroy Garuda and possibly cause Ryu's death. When they finally obey, Radiguet is destroyed. A slow, painful loss of blood, then a huge explosion as his form loses its integrity. The robots all go down.


The death of Gai Yuki

With the Vyram dead (or permanently institutionalized as in Tranza's case), the Jetmen go back to living the life of normal humans. Three years later, Ako is a rising singing star, Raita has married his childhood sweetheart, Ryu and Kaori are marrying each other and Gai has become a successful businessman. While he is out buying flowers for his friends' wedding, Gai stops a mugger from stealing a woman's purse. But the mugger stabs Gai with a small knife. The wedding ceremony over, all guests come outside for photos and farewells. Ryu finds Gai sitting on a bench. Gai looks worn and exhausted, says it's because he overworked yesterday. They get their picture taken together, and Ryu goes off to join his wife and the others. Kaori asks, "Isn't Gai coming?" Ryu says, "He's very tired." Kaori and Gai exchange reassuring smiles across the distance. Ryu sees Rie's ghost one last time, smiling and waving farewell to him. Gai dies on the bench.
