The Raleigh-Durham Skyhawks were a professional American football team in World League of American Football that played in Raleigh, North Carolina. The team was a charter member of the WLAF but ended operations after just one season. The name was inspired by the Wright brothers' flights on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The three jet-trails and three planes in flight, as well as the triangle design in the logo, represented the three points of the Research Triangle area (Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill). The team's cheerleaders were known as the "Kittyhawks."
