Considered "weird" while he grew up in New Haven, Connecticut, Airtight is known for being an even stranger adult. He keeps scorpions for pets and enjoys tomato and peanut butter sandwiches. An expert in CBR (Chemical, Biological and Radiological Warfare), Airtight enjoys his job intensely.
Airtight joined the G.I. Joe team in 1985. During their final training mission as provisional members of the G.I. Joe team, Airtight, Bazooka, Crankcase and Heavy Metal were testing out new vehicles in the desert near Las Vegas, Nevada led by Lady Jaye. On the highway on the way back from a lunch break, the group was attacked by Cobra B.A.T.s (Battle Android Troopers) carrying creeper vines and sleeping gas created by Cobra agent Dr. Mindbender, who was demonstrating them to Destro and the Baroness. The Joes were kidnapped and forced into battling the B.A.T.s in a junkyard. Airtight figured out how to defeat the vines and with the help of the other Joes, destroyed Mindbender's factory, forcing the three Cobras into retreat.
