A SHIELD flight pack was a common item used by agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. The pack was attached to a harness, and worn across the back, enabling agents limited flight capability within atmospheric environments. The original flight packs incorporated twin rocket thruster engines, but later, more advanced models used a wing assembly that attached to an agent's body armor. S.H.I.E.L.D. agents used these flight packs during assault drops from the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and they became particularly useful during S.H.I.E.L.D.s numerous battles against the terrorist organization known as HYDRA. A special S.H.I.E.L.D. detachment known as the Godzilla Squad also used flight packs in their mission to safeguard American interests from the threat of the giant monster Godzilla. Following the "Civil War", the flight packs were incorporated into an agent's body armor and were first deployed over Kirikhstan in an effort to stop the rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist Nicolas Weir and the mutated Overkill Horn. These models were first used by the impromptu flight unit dubbed "Tim Dugan's Flying Commandos".[1]
