Not to hijack the thread and change it into a discussion about WWOR...but...

It's funny, because even though I was a little tyke at the time, I specifically remember watching a half hour version of "Diamonds Aren't a Girl's Best Friend" on WWOR out of New Jersey. They seemed to play KR many hours a day - some were 30 min, some were the full hour. All I remember is ...

Re: 3.20 - Knight Strike

I'll have to check my records...but I don't think that the hotel has been found yet...it would probably be fairly simple to find by looking for cues in the episode, I just don't think anyone has done that yet. EDIT: There's a scene inside the hotel that shows a sign for the "Claremont Room"...

The GPS coordinates for the exact spot are: 34.390504, -118.620631

Just paste those into the Google Maps browser. Here's an aerial view:

My bad, it's off Potrero Canyon Rd, not Pico...same area though.

Paul at the Knight Rider Archive is the guy to answer this...I have a partial list of season 4 filming dates, but he may be able to fill in the blanks. I can tell you that The Scent of Roses was not filmed last, but in the later half of the season. I believe Voo Doo Knight was the actual last episod...

The airport scenes (both in LA and Vegas) take place at Brackett Airfield in Verne, CA. It's the same airport used in "White Bird" and can be identified by the unique shape of the control tower:
