Chuck Adams

Mechanic

53 years old

Seasons: 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5

A mechanical genius, Chuck is also grumpy, outspoken and foul-mouthed. He seems to belong with the oil spewing, fire-breathing engines at Buffalo, where he's worked on-and-off for 16 years. This year, Chuck has a "bad feeling" as a newly overhauled C-46 takes off for its test flight. When the plane collapses on the runway upon landing, it sends the entire Buffalo crew scrambling. Chuck blames himself but has to rebound to get Buffalo's wounded bird back flying. And he soon gets a chance to take a shot on an NHL goalie – if he can stay upright on skates.
