Al Tennyson

Al Tennyson worked as a short order cook at the the Sparrow Ridge Airport, a small private airstrip in Arizona. When Terry Andrews and his three partners, Buddy, Turk, and Elias, masterminded an armored car robbery in Texas with a rendezvoused at the Sparrow Ridge Airport to hijack a charter plane to escape across the border into Mexico, Al was taken hostage along with airport owners, Kelly and Dave. Al complied with the thieves’ demands to prepare food for them, but he stood up to them when they harassed Kelly and prepared to kill the others, refusing to go out like a whimpering dog.

Al helped encourage Dave to overcome his PTSD so he could fly his helicopter again to help MacGyver stop the criminals by pointing out that this was “one of those times where you choose to go one way or the other and the rest of your life depends on which way you choose.”
